The Youth Vote: Kingmakers in the Senate


I just got this from Rock-the-Vote:

"Young voters increased their turnout over 2002 and favored Democrats by large margins," said Hans Riemer, Rock the Vote's political director. "They played a major role in the Democratic victory."

A sample of exit polling from close Senate races around the country shows that the youth vote was key to the Democratic victory.
