CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- In three separate polls, the kids chose Obama with an overwhelming majority. WOOZWORLD, a leading Virtual World and Social Network for kids, conducted “Kids-Only Surveys” to see whom they would vote for if the election was held today. Two surveys were held prior to the October 3rd Presidential debate, and one the following day.
Not only did the kids resoundingly vote for Barack Obama (60%), his popularity actually grew from the two previous surveys (pre-debate) where he had 56% of the votes. Romney still came in at a distant third with 19% of the votes, with “Other” beating him at 25%.
“We wanted to understand the impact of the debate on the kids and surprisingly, the votes shifted from the Undecided’s (Other) to Obama,” said Eric Brassard, President and CEO of WOOZWORLD. “Over 3100 kids spontaneously responded to our survey that ran over one day (25 hours). At the international level, Romney is still out of the running at 6%, with the real race between Obama (50%) and Other (44%).”
With about a month to go until the general election, WOOZWORLD will conduct regular polls to track the youth’s opinion.
