Early Numbers: Young Voters in President Obama’s Victory

Battling diminished enthusiasm and a tough economy for recent college graduates, the Obama campaign managed to turn out young voters to a remarkable degree in Tuesday’s Presidential election. Early exit poll data indicates that young voters (18-29 years old) made up 19% of the overall electorate. That is both higher than the youth vote’s electorate portion in 2008 (18%), and a greater percentage of the electorate than those over 65 years of age.

Governor Romney was able to cut into President Obama’s support- but not by nearly enough to pull out a victory. Obama, who gained the votes of 66% of young Americans in 2008, retained support from 60% this year, according to exit poll data. Governor Romney’s support was below 40%.

Stay tuned to CIRCLE later today for exclusive data on youth turnout- we’ll continue to update this post as more information becomes available.
