I know what you thought when you read that: “But I thought the children were our future!?”

True enough.

Youth turnout this November was the highest it has been in twenty years, and it favored Democrats by a whopping 22 percent margin (60% to 38%). This is more than twice as favorable as any other age group.

People associate with a political party in their youth, and it usually sticks. Those who came of age during FDR’s (prolonged) tenure became New Deal Democrats. Many voters from Reagan’s era – now in their 40s or 50s – are reliably Republican. Bush seems to be having a similar effect, except he is driving people away from his party. Our generation is becoming politically conscience in the era of 9/11, Katrina, and Iraq, and the Republican Party is suffering for it.

Young voters believe that America is on the “wrong track” by a ratio of three-to-one.

In nine years, our generation will comprise a third of the total electorate.

The future looks bright. Pun intended.
