Newsela Reports: If Kids Voted, Which Presidential Candidate Would Win?

Nov 3, 2016

CURRENT EVENTS: According to the letter of the law, you have to be at least 18 years of age to vote in the U.S. presidential race. But that hasn't stopped news literacy organization Newsela from running a mock "Students Vote 2016" campaign of its own. Specifically, Newsela surveyed 385,000 K-12 students on who'd they pick for President. Clinton won most swing states, but Trump maintained his hold on Ohio. But the biggest question is, who did students vote into office? Hillary Clinton, by a landslide—57% of students for Clinton vs. 32% for Donald Trump.
