    The ABC/Washington Post poll has Obama ahead among the under-30s by a whopping 66 percent to 30 percent, while McCain leads among over-65s (technically, I should say "65 and overs," but "over-65s" is more succinct) by 45 percent to 40 percent. Quinnipiac has Obama leading among under-35s by 63 percent to 31 percent, while McCain edged Obama 45 percent to 44 percent among over-55s. The CBS/New York Times poll showed Obama leading among under-30s by 48 percent to 36 percent, while McCain led among over-65s by 42 percent to 40 percent. In general, Obama's current lead in recent polls is due entirely to his lead—by as much as 2-1—among young voters.

    What Obama needs to do is buy a lot of commercials on Matlock.

    The younger candidate is almost always favored by younger voters. Kind of a no-brainer.

    Don't tell me someone made money selling stating the obvious as news?

    This shouldn't really surprise anyone... Most of these are in their 20's just graduating from college where for 4 years they have been told that Republicans are evil... From these numbers it looks like as people get older they tend to go more middle of the road than far left.

    dont stereotype or anything. i was never told that repubs were evil. in fact, my school had a huge republican club and a democrat club with about 11 members
