The kids have spoken: “We’re with her.”
A Scholastic Inc. mock election, run every four years since 1940, has handed victory to the Democrat and first-ever woman on the national ballot. Over 150,000 students participated, with 52% voting for Hillary Clinton and 35% voting for Republican candidate Donald Trump. Write-in and third-party candidates won 13% of votes, a historic high.
A separate mock election, run by education technology company Newsela, remains available to students through Nov. 1.
