As you saw in my previous post, AP said:VOTE! There has never been a more important time for you to vote - no matter your age. But you first time and younger voters have the power to change our country for the better.
Voter turnout is likely to be higher than in recent presidential elections - especially among young voters - in a very close race, weekend polls suggest.Couple that with what Zogby said this morning:
The real news here is that 18-29 year olds favor Kerry 64% to 35%, with 1% for Nader -- and 0% undecided. When I see a low undecided number it means that group is going to vote. I am factoring this group to be 12% of the total vote -- but it could be higher. Each point it goes higher translates into two-thirds of a percent for Kerry -- if these numbers hold up.The higher the voter turnout among young voters, then the more likely it will be for Kerry to win.
