The majority of 18- to 29-year-olds are following the election and plan to vote Tuesday, according to a poll released Tuesday by the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement at Tufts University. The poll found that engagement had increased since July, as had support for President Obama among young people.
The poll found 67 percent of young people plan to vote, and that 52 percent plan to vote for Obama, 35 percent for Mitt Romney, and 4 percent for a third-party candidate, and 8 percent are still undecided. Whether college students will vote has been a key question for the Obama campaign, since young people formed the base of his support in 2008.
