Mitt Romney hates Big Bird and now it seems the kids of America as well, as he has declined to participate in Nickelodeon’s “Kids Pick the President” special. This is just the second time in the past six presidential elections, when the special began, a candidate has declined to participate. Afraid of the tough questions Mitt?
The special requires 30 minutes of the candidate’s time and asks that they answer questions submitted by kids. After the special airs kids can then go online and vote on who they think should be president, with the online poll having correctly predicted the president in five of the past six elections.
A Nickelodeon source says the network was told late last week that Romney “would not be available to participate.”
Interestingly enough, same-sex marriage is the issue affecting the country the most according to the first online poll of kids says Nickelodeon.
