Young Voters Support Bush
I had noticed several instances of commentators saying that young Americans were relatively conservative, and especially libertarian, compared to other Americans, but I had not seen the data to back it up. Here are some specific poll results that confirm what I had seen earlier.

That link shows the results of a hypothetical Bush-Dean matchup, broken down by age. Bush's lead is actually largest in my age group, at 24%. I thought young people were supposed to be liberal.

------ 18-30 31-44 45-60 61+ All
Bush 60% 53% 57% 47% 54%
Dean 36% 42% 37% 39% 39%
