Youth Vote By the Numbers

November 5, 2008 | NeW Staff

Throughout this election season, we heard that the youth vote (age 18-29) was going to decide our next president.   Now that the numbers are in, we did see an increase in the number of young voters, but their proportion of voters did not change much.  According to CIRCLE, about 22-24 million young Americans voted, which was an increase of about 2.2 million from the 2004 presidential race.  Young voters made up approximately 18% of all voters, which is an increase from 16% in 2004.  Who did young voters favor?  Young voters favored Obama (66%) over McCain (32%).  It is interesting to see the numbers.
