Skinsfanthru&thru-- I dont know much about the demographics you might want to check out the USA Today, today or tommorow. I did hear on ESPN Radio on the Herd that only 17% of voters 18-24 voted.

I heard the young vote was better this time around, but still by far the smallest percentage of those who vote. Once I saw stories of long lines at the polls, which is a good thing, I still thought the downside is that a majority of young people do not have the patience to stand in 4 hour+ lines to vote.

I was pulling for Kerry, but I knew Bush was going to win. So I'm not surprised. Never underestimate the Corporate Press and the Uninformed. Once again corporate America wins

It was obvious after the 2002 midterms elections that the Democrats needed some major changes in their leadership. Maybe now they will shake things up (but I'm not counting on it)

I was really disappointed to hear that.

That's the same percentage that voted back in 2000.

Alot of people in that age group are away at college, and the gov't doesn't make it very easy for college kids to vote, so alot of them give in and don't bother.

Matty have you seen Frank Caliendo on the Pregame show? He does the best Bush impersonation. I think he's on Mad TV too. It's hilarious.

I think Caliendo can impersonate just about anyone. He's really good.

There will be some changes indeed. Barrack Obama has a great future ahead him. He was one of the few bright spots for us Dems last night. Whether the country has the grapefruits to elect an African-American candidate for President is another story. But I put him near the top of my list of candidates I want to see in 2008.

Its really not that hard to register. I almost wish the draft was really on the table, just to see if that would push those other 87% to vote. To those young voters that did get out there and vote, you should get automatic "immunity" from any draft.

terrorists won't be crashing any planes or detonating any bombs in the South, Ohio, nor the rest of the midwest.

not even with saddam's non-existent WMD. but i got to see bin laden looking pretty healthy the other day. looks like his cave days are long behind him.
