High Turnout Expected for Young Voters, Study Says

Young Voter Attitudes

The 11th Biannual Youth Survey on Politics and Public Service from Harvard's Institute of Politics finds that 60 percent of the 18-to-24-year-olds polled feel the country is "on the wrong track."

A Harvard Institute of Politics study concludes that nearly one-third of 18- to 24-year-olds plan on voting in the upcoming midterm elections. That could mean the highest turnout for the age group in any midterm election in the last 20 years. Robert Siegel talks to IOP Director Jeanne Shaheen.
