college students in the ’04 election

I’m on my way to Madison, Wisconsin, to talk to social studies teachers. Meanwhile, CIRCLE will be releasing a really interesting poll of college students. Visit the CIRCLE homepage around noon to see all the details. Among other things …

  • College students were remarkably likely to discuss the election and to persuade other students to vote. Both forms of engagement were far more common than at any time since the 1960s.
  • Students reported very few problems voting.
  • Students were heavily mobilized by parties, non-partisan groups, peers, and colleges.
  • Students voted differently depending on their majors. Arts and humanities students were the most solidly for Kerry, business students leaned slighly toward the Democrats, and only education students actually gave a majority to Bush.
