This polling of high school students,
of course, would be the flip side to the polling of children I was complaining about yesterday
, if perhaps a bit less frivolous in that the sample group is only a few years away from voting, rather than five to ten. I don't think it necessarily means anything right now, but regardless of this year's results, it's probably a good harbinger for 2008 and 2012, as that age cohort reaches the peak of their influence.
On the other hand, in the metanarrative, consider that the Nickelodeon poll got the AP's attention
and propagated quickly; this story is reduced to being fed off a couple of press release newswires.
What Liberal Media? Oh, right...
