Scholars Choose McCain In Mock Election

A Kentucky mock election shows the state's Governor's Scholars are about evenly split of who should be the next president.

The Secretary of State's office oversaw the votes of 1,075 incoming high school seniors who are studying this summer on college campuses.

49 percent picked republican John McCain. 47 percent say they are for democrat Barack Obama.

Other minor candidates were in the low single digits.

    I see that 49% of the kids in this state are just as ignorant of the economy and politics as their parents are. McCain has already said that he will balance the budget by the end of his first term with the savings by "winning" the Iraq War during his first year in office. Doesn't he realize that this war is not "winnable"? When you have 2 groups who have fought and hated each other for 2,000 years, there isn't a group in the world that is going to stop them. We might pull out, but they will continue to kill each other long beyond our own deaths. This shows not only McCain hasn't a clue about this war and what it's over, but he doesn't know how the war is funded and how our economy works. The war is being paid for with BORROWED MONEY, not money that we have on-hand. Even if it ended tomorrow, that money is not available to balance a budget or cut the deficit, because it doesn't exist, it's borrowed. I think we're hurting no matter who gets Pres in November.
