At Philbrick Elementary, Barack Obama beat John McCain 83,370 to 62,808, as of 10 a.m. on Monday, according to the Roslindale Transcript. I hope that’s not the actual popular vote at the Philbrick. I’ve heard of overcrowding, but sheesh. They even had fancy computer voting and an electoral college. I think a lot of adults struggle with the concept of the electoral college. At the Philbrick, it appears that they created their own. Impressive.
Meanwhile, it was a landslide over at the Haley school, where 263 students voted for Obama and 19 for McCain.
