Student choice

Not always is the Idaho Student Mock Election, whose results were released today, predictive of Idaho state results. But a particular variation in this one make it worth watching.

At the top of the ballot, the Idaho students chose Republicans Mitt Romney for president and Raul Labrador for U.S. representative in the 1st district, and Mike Simpson in the second. That’s certainly in line with what the state is likely to do tomorrow, though the margins were closer than the real election’s likely will be.

Having said that, there’s this: The students voted overwhelmingly against the “Luna laws,” the three referenda (1, 2 and 3) which would sustain them or reject them. The students’ margins on them were not close, about three to one in opposition to each. They defeated #3, for example, by 324-1,363.

What will the statewide voters do tomorrow?
