Channel One News today announced Hillary Clinton the winner of OneVote 2016, its nationwide mock election for students in upper elementary, middle and high schools, with 47% of the vote vs. 41% for Trump and 12% for “other” candidates. Apparently, OneVote has accurately predicted the next POTUS in every mock election since the program began in 1992. I still say Bernie was the candidate of choice for Gen Z, but since most of them still can’t vote, they were overruled in favor of Clinton.
I look forward to seeing what the 2020 presidential election looks like. I’m guessing (hoping) it will be an entirely different story in four years – perhaps one with integrity, class and mutual respect. Gen Z will demand it.
