The American kids’ channel Nickelodeon has been running Kids Pick the President: The Candidates since 1988, and the kids have picked the actual winner correctly 5 out of 6 times.

President Barack Obama has already agreed to appear on the show, in which children ask the presidential candidates questions, but Romney, who last week threatened to cut funding for Big Birdhouse PBS, refused.

Romney’s campaign team refused to comment on the issue, but Linda Ellerbee, host of Nick News said “it’s just a shame when both candidates don’t see it as something important?.

The only two previous candidates to refuse are John Kerry and George W. Bush
