My five-year-old came home with an “I Voted” sticker on Monday and informed me that he’d cast his ballot for the guy he’s insisted for weeks on calling “OhRock Obama.” Turns out that he was part of the “Every Kid Votes” program, in which some 800,000 kids in all 50 states (what company president Ed Rickers calls a “significant sampling”) made their choice, with OhRock prevailing 59 percent to 41 percent.

Just sayin’.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
