I ran across this article from a few days ago from Chris Bowers at MyDD. I thought I would just say, "you are welcome".
Thats right. The generation that I belong to is now as big as the baby boomer generation (we are your kids after all). More importantly, we are a very liberal group.
(follow for more)
Some key stats:
61% of Gen Y is white
In 2006 exit polls we voted Democrat 60% to 39%
In 2006 exit polls 41% called themselves Democrats. 28% called themselves Republicans.
12% of all voters in 2006 were from Generation Y.
Keep something else in mind. This generation extends to those born in 1994. Those kids cant vote for another 6 years. Do you remember what happened when you were growing up? I know I do. Most of my generation that cant vote is going to have Iraq, Katrina etc as the pivotal moments of their pre-voting political lives.
Im excited, and all of you owe us a thank you.
