A survey of young people finds that 15 percent more young people, aged 18-29, say they will come out to vote this year – and most will be voting for Obama.
The study was conducted online by the “Gen Y research and consulting firm” Millenial Branding and Internships.com, and surveyed 2,236 people who fit into that age group.
From the study:
“75% will be voting in this election compared to only 60% that voted in 2008. Of those who will be voting this year, 64% intend to vote for Obama and only 22% for Romney. Out of those polled, 44% associated with the Democratic party, while 27% were Independents and only 17% associated with the Republican party. 54% are either considering or very interested in volunteering with a local campaign.”
In conclusion, young people still like Obama.
