- 1996...Clinton blows out Dole (don't forget: H. Ross Perot made this look a lot closer than it was!).
- 2000...Bush squeaks by Gore (although no one in the initial vote tally weighed in on the Florida Factor).
- 2004...Bush beats Kerry, but things are "trending" Democratic.
- 2008...Obama obliterates McCain.
Well, the poll above, which ran in our latest issue, shows Our Seniors going for Obama Bigtime. The actual vote percentage, at Press Time, was 52 to 46 percent. That's not as skewed toward the winner as the newspaper poll at Our Humble High School, but it does tell a tale.
Don't know where the other 2 percent of the "Real Vote" went. Probably the same place as some of our Wayward Seniors who cast their votes for someone other than the Legit Candidates: 1 for Ralph Nader, 2 for Jesus Christ, & 3 for Pee Wee Herman. There also appears to be 1 percent missing...
But, even though they can't add all the way up to 100 percent, these periodistas have learned a valuable lesson about the proclivities of Democracy: It pays to have a sense of humor!
