A Final Note on MA-Sen: Young Voters Stayed Home

The same voters who preferred Obama 5:1 in 2008, 30 and under crowd, preferred Coakley 3:1.

Unfortunately, only 15% of them came out to vote in Massachusetts on Tuesday.

I'd guess a general impatience with DC, a GOTV effort that ignored them, and general disapproval with the continued influence of Lieberman/Neslon types in policy making contributed to this.

It's something Democratic leadership needs to recognize.
