From Dan Froomkin:

Dave Goldiner writes in the New York Daily News: “A new online poll conducted by Scholastic magazine says more than 80% of kids don’t want to be the leader of the most powerful nation on Earth.

“Amazingly, that’s a nearly total flip from 2004, when 75% of the elementary and middle school children did want to rule the roost from the White House. . . .

“Scholastic editors say they have no idea why kids’ opinions have changed so dramatically about the nation’s top job. They don’t necessarily believe it is linked to President Bush’s growing unpopularity.”
