US: Hillary Clinton wins kids vote in Nickelodeon’s 2016 Kids Pick The President vote

With the US presidential debate coming to a close this week, Nickelodeon has asked children to choose their favourite, with Hillary Clinton coming out on top.

In Nickelodeon’s 2016 Kids Pick The President “Kids’ Vote”, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton received 53 per cent of the vote, followed by Republican candidate Donald Trump with 36 per cent.

Meanwhile, third party candidate Gary Johnson gained 11 per cent of the kids’ votes.

905,928 kids were asked to vote in Nickelodeon’s online poll for its Kids Pick the President initiative, which is designed to give children a voice and raise their awareness of the electoral process.

Since 1988, children have correctly predicted the next US president for six out of seven of the past elections.
