  •  Youth Vote (1+ / 0-)

    I'm not sure what to say about that Survey USA poll, it's a very odd speculation to ask people to make. In Mississippi, Obama once again won the youth vote heavily, 73-25, which is all the more notable for the racial division. The exit polls don't give the breakdown for young white voters, but a quick look says that they voted for Obama much more often than older whites.

    •  yeah, the youth vote generally goes for him (0+ / 0-)

      but not always with the spread you would expect listening to the media. (have checked a few exits) and i would expect the youth up to mid range to be less concerned about race. mid-range is prob more regional, aka as not the south since he does well in midwest and western, eastern states. yeah, polls are odd speculation right now, but interesting to me anyways. i'm sort of trying to sit in overview position as i want a Blue WH in Nov :)

      truth be told, i'm pretty proud both Obama and Clinton are pulling in the numbers they are. remember, back when this was all speculation, the buzz was . .

      are we ready for a woman?

      are we ready for a black man?

      thank god we've pretty much put that to rest. still have a ways to go as we have seen, but we will not be looking at 2 older white christian dudes come Nov.  ;)
