Bernie Sanders Wins Mock Presidential Election (Link)

To promote civic education, Western Illinois University (WIU) Professors Hardy and Hemingway simulate presidential primaries and elections with student voters – in advance of the real events. The Mock Presidential Election is part of their American Democracy Project, and they’ve been it for the last 35 years. So far, the simulated student voter elections have been 100% accurate!

According to this year’s Mock Presidential Election, Bernie Sanders wins both the Democratic Primary and the 2016 Presidential election. Surprised? Not me. Woo-hoo! Feel the Bern!

Dr. Rick Hardy and Dr. John Hemingway have been leading Mock Presidential Elections since 1975. During that time, students who have participated in these mock elections have chosen the winning party with 100% accuracy and have an astonishing record in selecting presidential winners.

        It was a great story. And, yeah , that is what I try to do: spread the news. As an aside, you are a particularly important source. I think you may be the only liberal blog in my newsfeeds with several conservative and a number of “tinfoil hat” feeds.
