Area kids pick Obama, Dalton


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Last week we told you about local students casting their own votes in the national Kids Voting program. More than 6,000 students voted in New Hanover County, and today the results are in:

Presidential Race:
(D) Barack Obama: 58%
(R) Mitt Romney: 38%
(L) Gary Johnson: 3%

NC Gubernatorial Race:
(D) Walter Dalton: 46%
(R) Pat McCrory: 40%
(L) Barbara Howe: 12%

These results are preliminary. Official results will be released after Election Day.

Back in 2008, North Carolina kids correctly predicted the outcome of both the presidential and gubernatorial races.
