My son is in first grade also, but we haven't done too much with the election here in our home school. I did just double-check to make sure he knew what a president was, and he said it's a "person who rules the country" --unfortunately true in the current time period! If there were cool kids like your daughter in our local public school, I wouldn't be so worried about sending him there.
I remember when I was student teaching, and one of the teachers came right out during the 2000 election and said to me that it was her job to get kids to be Democrats and to stop thinking the way their parents thought. It's good to see that with proper parenting, kids can stand up for truth regardless of the closed minds of their teachers.
