As we inch closer to November '08, everyone and their mother has a theory about what to expect from youth voting. The most common theory is, well, not to expect youth voting.
Mike Connery over at Future Majority is doing his best to blow that argument out of the water.
Links and more below.
Mike posted a roundup today, Around the Tubes, wherein he knocks the New York Times for "sloppy work" in their statistics-gathering, lauds the Houston Chronicle, yawns at a new Project Vote Smart venture (for reasons that he doesn't specify) and... well, you can see for yourself.
Last on the list — very modest, Mike — is his very own entry on the Huffington Post, Fact Checking Media Coverage of the Iowa Caucus Youth Vote. Worth a look.
