I think that's newsworthy, but not our local newspaper, which trumpets "33% of students support Kerry". And yes, they do. 25% support Bush, 31% don't know (plus 7% honest enough to say they won't vote.) No surprise there, because in a separate question 36% identify themselves as Democrats, 27% as Republicans and 14% consider themselves independent (as opposed to the 2% who said they considered themselves part of the Independence Party of Jesse Ventura.) Students aren't wild over any candidate right now, which isn't surprising. Perhaps the candidates should just offer them beer.
