CIRCLE now estimates that:It's my last year in this particular demographic, so I'm very glad to see what we pulled off. Republican strategists can't be happy with the way that map looks.* 23 million young voters cast a ballot on Tuesday, an increase of 3.4 million over 2004.The big story still remains Obama's staggering 66 - 32% margin among youth...
* Youth turnout will likely top off at 52 - 53%. That would rival the 1992 turnout, and fall just short of the all time record of 55.4% set in 1972.
* Young voters accounted for 60% of the overall turnout increase. That for the whole electorate.
* CIRCLE still estimates that young voters made up 18% of the total electorate.
