Trump Shock Victory Among 27k Public School Students In Maine
There is a relentless effort by the entertainment industry to brainwash America’s children so they will grow up to vote Democrat. A large percentage of public schools teachers and public school administrators also spoon-feed children cultural Marxism on a daily basis. In fact, public school teachers are considered part of the Democrat Party’s base.
Nevertheless, Trump actually won a mock election among 27,000 public school children in blue state!
The mock election was open to students aged K-12 at 155 different public schools. The mock election is conducted by the Office of the Secretary of State.
The students dutifully voted in favor of a bunch of statist/big government ballot initiatives. They voted for two tax hikes, a minimum wage increase, more gun control, and to keep cannabis illegal for persons over 21. They did however, vote in favor of ranked-choice voting, which could be considered an anti-establishment move. However, most of the students probably had no idea what they were even voting on. Most adults would not know what ranked-choice voting means.
Based on how the students voted for the six ballot initiatives, you would think that the election should have been a slam dunk for Hillary. You would also expect that public school students in a blue state would vote for Hillary in even larger numbers than their parents.
WRONG! Trump beat Hillary by a point and a half.
The students voted for US Congress based on their district. Both incumbents, one Republican and one Democrat, won by large margins.
