In a national poll conducted this spring by the University of Virginia Center for Politics' Youth Leadership Initiative, over 13,000 students representing schools in 45 states cast their ballot in the 8 for '08 Youth Poll. Designed in partnership with The White House Project and intended to promote the viability of female politicians as presidential candidates, the poll presented students with eight potential female candidates from which to choose.

In the nationwide results, students gave the greatest support to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (39 percent), followed by New York Senator Hillary Clinton (31 percent). Other results included Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin (8 percent), Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (6 percent), Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius (5 percent), Maine Senator Olympia Snowe (5 percent), Maine Senator Susan Collins (4 percent) and Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano (3 percent). In total, 13,176 kindergarten through twelfth-grade students from 618 schools across the United States and the District of Columbia participated in the poll. A breakdown of results by state is available at www.youthleadership.net.
