They can't vote but Scholastic has polled up to a quarter million kids each election cycle for decades now, and the results are pretty predictive (Dewey won in 1948 and Nixon won in 1960, but those are the two exceptions). Anyway, the result is 57 - 39 for Obama. I'm not sure how big this margin is historically. Seems pretty big to me (but it's much closer in the battleground states).
