Survey at Starbucks

Weekly editors

This week’s cover story examines the trickle-down effect at NU of each presidential candidate’s plan for the nation. Plus, early voting started in over thirty states this week, so the race to the White House is officially in swing. Our Norris survey last night revealed an overwhelmingly Obama-loving campus. One grad student said: “Seriously, McCain is an idiot. Are you kidding me?” Of the eight students who offered up their own picks, one would choose Ron Paul if he could, Nader got name-dropped by three students, and one freshman would opt for Reagan: “Like comedian Lewis Black said recently, I think it’s a good time to elect a dead president.”

Obama: 87McCain: 8

*It doesn’t add up to 100 votes, and that’s okay! [Eight students gave “other options”]
