USF political scientist says youth vote not as big in 2012
From the “ Vote or Die” campaign to President Obama’s connection with the youth vote, 2004′s presidential elections saw an uncharactersitically high level of enthusiasm from young voters. This time around, the youth vote has been less targeted so far in campaigns than many other voting groups. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Emily Burris looks at why younger voters were so active four years ago, and why we’ll almost certainly see less of them this time around.
