Bush Wins with College Students

The Daily Beacon Online - Bush wins mock election:

"President George Bush won by almost 400 votes when University of Tennessee students took to the online polls Oct. 7 and 8 in the Student Government Association-sponsored mock elections.
The Bush/Cheney ticket received 1,015 votes to the Kerry/Edwards ticket receiving 643 votes. Students had the opportunity to vote for all candidates that will appear on the Tennessee ballot in the November elections.
A total of 1,721 students - 6.6 percent of the student body - voted in the election. SGA had hoped that 8,000 students would cast votes, Kristi Bogle, SGA government affairs assistant director, said last week. "

Tennessee is not Boulder but still it's suprising to see college students voting Republican. It at least coincides with this story. What's the old saying? If you're not a liberal when your 20 you have no heart. If you're still a liberal when you're 40 your have no brain.
