Former Vice President Joe Biden won the popular vote for president in a virtual, non-scientific poll among non-voting age children conducted by Nickelodeon.

Kid’s media platform Nickelodeon conducted a virtual ballot, polling nearly 90,000 children between Oct. 20 and Oct. 26. The tally from the informal vote found Biden edging out President Donald Trump by a 6% margin, taking 53% of the vote count.

“Though kids are not of an age to vote, Kids Pick the President is a platform where their voices do count, and they deserve to be heard,” the network said in a press release.

A special aired in coordination with the mock vote educated children on the election process and offered them a chance to express their opinions on national matters ranging from the pandemic to racial equality and the environment.

Nickelodeon stated there were issues with voter fraud online. Vote monitors on Oct. 21 found evidence of plans to stack the count with fraudulent votes. While looking at the matter, monitors uncovered more than 130,000 votes cast by online bots.

“Nickelodeon utilized a voter certification tool to identify these votes and to remove them, ensuring that only individually placed votes counted toward the total,” the network stated.

Those of the legal voting age will finish casting their votes on Nov. 3. A barometer from Gallup for October finds Trump’s approval rating at 43%, few people expressed confidence in the state of the nation in general and the economic mood was in negative territory.
