the youth vote on PBS NewsHour and elsewhere in the media

Below is a thoughtful and well-reported segment on the youth vote. Judy Woodruff has been covering youth issues with depth and consistency for several cycles and goes beneath the simple, horse-race question (“Will they vote for Obama or not?”) that most reporters ask. She also has a recent blog post with more information. I’m in this clip for a little while, but CIRCLE’s influence on the reporters’ fieldwork and agenda satisfies me much more than my own quotes. (That was also the case with a recent New York Times piece by Susan Saulny.)
