The Nation's Students Pick Barack Obama in the Just Completed Weekly Reader Presidential Election Poll

Just days before Americans choose our next president, voting has concluded in the Weekly Reader Student Presidential Election Poll.

The Obama victory in the classroom electoral vote was even more resounding: The Democrat won 33 states and the District of Columbia, garnering 420 electoral votes, while McCain took 17 states and 118 electoral votes.
