In early exit polling, first-time voters are breaking overwhelmingly for Sen. Barack Obama. 72 percent report say they voted for Obama, compared with 27 percent for McCain. First-time voters compose 10 percent of the total national electorate thus far.
Just talked to my 21 year old niece who voted for the 1st time – for Obama!
And right there is BO's 7-point lead.
CAMPBELL BROWN, I hope this answer your questions regarding whether or not first time voters and young voters would come out. Looks to me like they have showed up.
I found your comment earlier in the week a little condescending.
From this 57 year old Southern white guy
Bless you my children!!
I hope that the fear leading lier. who has lost all moral values loses big!!!! he is discusting!!!! Vote Obama!!!!! NOW!!!!!!
Some of us old-timers did too. he he he he he
YES WE CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The reason is because Obama his reached out to them, to get them involved and make them feel important. Obama is an inspiring person and this country will do great things with him as our President.
Dont worry Obama...You are already in the WHITE HOUSE
and I'm one of them!
I smell LANDSLIDE.
Jacked-Up – She's ALWAYS condescending. Don't think it's just now. Typical republican, she is.
28 year old first time voter from FL voted for OBAMA!!!!!!
Need to replace the old guard in DC. These flyers, text messages etc, are an illustration of win at all costs approach. That is why the Clintons and McCains must go. Why should not Americans have the same health plans as Congress. Can you imagine, they represent us and look at them and look at us. Enough is enough. Barrack stated that we should have access to the same plans. Could not agree more. Lets just do away with the self serving parties and elect the best candidate and then they have to work together. THE CURRENT SYSTEM IS BROKEN!
This should not surprise anyone. McCain does not identify with young people. Repeatedly telling people you are a "maverick" doesn't really make you one and young people can sniff out bull when they hear it.
Selecting Sarah Palin was his first executive move and McCain proved he is reckless, not a maverick. Tonight we will see that voters of all ages can smell bull all the way from Washington.
WOW, the architect of change is finally recognized by the power of today, this is good for democracy.
GOD BLESS AMERICA
MAN! IF OBAMA WINS THEY WILL HAVE TO SEND LOU DOBBS TO A DETOX OR REHAB CENTER SOMEWHERE.
Game, set, and match.
Young / First time voters did what they needed to do.
I'm getting ready to head down to Grant Park for Obama's victory celebration; Oops I meant Election watch party.
w00t!! that's the way, uh huh uh huh, I like it!!
We all knew that every single black person in America that has never voted a day in their lives would come out of the wood work to vote on this day! They should have been exercising this right all these years instead of waiting for someone else to do the work!!
Come on America! Do the rest of the world proud and vote in Barack Obama as the next President. The rest of the world will love you if you do!
I'm one of them, I'm 18 and proudly voted for Obama!
Uniter vs Divider
Looks forward, uses technology and sees the world as one instead of looking in the past, avoids technology and sees the world as us vs "the enemy"
Jacked-up, I was worried about first time voters as much as Campbell Brown. Kids are so unreliable. I'm thrilled they showed up.
JACKED-UP-POLITICS, FLORIDA – don't worry about questions like Campbell Brown asked. In the New Order such questions will become illegal and the Thought Police will handle it.
