    A lot of them voted for the first time in the primaries or elections held last month.

    Nice try but that wasn't the Gallup poll question. But by all means go ahead and be optimistic about the youth vote. It's what Obama is counting on.

    mmkay, you got me there. I never really had much hope for the "youth" vote anyway since they are just as conflicted as everyone else.

    The better news is that among rural voters the boys are in a dead heat. Prolly the death knell for the GOP. :D

    Well, another answer is that 13% of registered voters in 2008 is more youth than 13% in 2004 since registrations were so high this year.

    An Obama win may still be the best idea AS LONG AS conservatives can take Congress in 2010 AND the Democrats don't have a super-majority come November.
