Map of the day (the kids are alright)

Electoral college map of K-12 students as surveyed by Scholastic.  Of course, as you probably know, young Americans are way less white than Americans as a whole.  That’s surely a good part of this.  Interestingly, these surveys have been quite accurate over history, only missing in a couple close elections.

    That is one aesthetically pleasing map. I don’t know why but it just caught my eye when I had a first glimpse of it. Lots of kids vote others in those polls.

    Kids in general have much more exposure to the “different” folk in schools than they ever will do in adulthood. Kids also have a sense of fairness and injustice until that is deadened by the demands of needing/wanting money.
    That is why public schools and universal national service are so important. We won’t be a nation without them.
