I am just wondering if those nasty 'bring back the draft' rumors affected the way 18-25 year old males voted.

I heard that most single young women below 25 voted for Kerry. Something like 74% went democratic.

This 18-25 year old male voted for Bush, as did my three 18-25 year old male roommates.

W for me.

My roommate left at like 6:30pm to vote for Kerry in his parents' county an hour away, then left on travel the next morning so I'm not sure if he managed to vote or not. (he and I hold good-natured arguments back and forth about twice a week)

Bring back the draft?

It was a democrat (Rangel?) that brought up the idea of restoring the draft.

In fact, it was a democrat (LBJ) whose name appeared on my draft notice.

Democrats. Bah. :)

The draft doesn't and didn't scare me. I would gladly serve my country if called. That being said, I definetly cast my vote for Bush.

(I also talked my brother in law, my sister, and my father into voting for him as well.):D

I voted bush (and I'm glad I voted in VA as opposed to WV).

There are lots of bush supporters here, but the kerry supporters were VERY vocal, so much so that some would almost pick a fight with someone who said they would vote for bush. The worst were some misguided iraq vets who backed the kerry creature in a big way, and did their best to confront (what seemed like) everyone.

My Son is only 17, he told me Tuesday if he could vote his would go to Bush.

According to the same exit poll data that predicted a Kerry victory, 18-29yr olds broke 55% Kerry 44% Bush 1% Other.

Michigan reported in the 18-29 age group; 51% for Kerry, 48% for Bush, but did not break it down by gender in the article I read

My vote went Bush. Although Bush would reenact the draft no more then Kerry would, I don't even think its a bad thing.

18-25 male here. I voted for Bush. Of course I'm already signed up to join the Army in June, so the draft wouldn't affect me too much. At least now I'll have a Commander-in-Chief I can respect...

21yrs old, voted Bush. Wish I would have realized just how many votes Bush was going to get in AR so I could have voted my conscience: Badnarik.

21 and I voted for Bush. So did my girlfriend if it makes any difference. I don't think I know anyone else in my age group who did though.

22 yr old male here. I voted for Badnarik.

My 21 yr old, politically uneducated girlfriend voted for Bush. Seems that many on this board did too. ;)

Oh, Bush didn't let the AWB die. Congress pulled that one off. Bush is the guy who said he would extend it. I couldn't, in good conscience, vote for such a traitor.

Bush = Kerry with different accent and different haircut. Kerry has better taste in neckties though. Thats the only difference.

19 here and voted Badnarik. And rest assured I wasn't one of the 76% that kept McCain in the senete. :banghead:

Let's just hope a ever so slightly more Republican congress makes some headway into repealing gun control, or at the very least doesn't make it any worse!

MSNBC actually showed the stat for that age group after the election. I think it was something like 45-55 Kerry. Which is actually less of a margin than I expected.

Outstanding results here!

My one daughter, 23, voted for Bush. The older one, 26, ................... voted The Dark Side.

24 y.o. here that voted for Bush. My 22 year old brother in law on the other hand voted for Kerry because of the "draft issue". He brought it up a couple weeks ago, and though I tried breifly to assure him there would be no draft, I don't think he got the message. Not worth messing with in-law relations when I wouldn't be able to change his mind anyway.

Most of my friends and I voted Dubya. We're all college aged. One of my roommates voted third party and another would've voted for Bush but he decided to be lazy because MI is always democratic.

Lot's more breakdowns as well.

30-44 (29% of total) 53% 46% 1%

45-59 (30% of total) 51% 48% 0%

60+ (24% of total) 54% 46% 0%

My wife and I are 21 and we both voted for Badnarik. If he weren't on the ballot and there were no such thing as write-ins, I probably would've left the president section blank.

On another note, my wife's ballot got sent to her parents house, as she used to live there. They knew she wasn't a big Bush fan, so they refused to give up her ballot. She had to do a provisional.

Conversely, my mom told me that I'd better not vote for Bush, and if I did she wouldn't cook for me anymore when I visit.

18 years old. Voted straight R...

Don't give a rat's behind about the draft because:

A) It's not going to happen unless something goes seriously wrong

amd

B) I'm volunteering for the military anyway
-That one REALLY tends to stop lefties in their tracks :what:

Hell, when we anounced going back to Iraq and I was completely hating my job I seriously considered signing up. I'm not scared of a Draft. If things get to that point I'll be in line at a recruiting station before a letter can ever get to my house. Three things keep me from signing up: my house, my physical condition, and my age. If I had a chance to do it all over, I'd probably be career military.

I wanted to vote Lib, but Kerry scared me into voting Bush.

When I first heard folks spouting off about reinstating the draft I laughed. Our military does NOT want any draftees, for any job, ever again.

Later, when I realised large numbers of people took all that seriously, all I could do was shake my head.

The Sixties ended before I was born, but some folks are not willing to acknowledge that.

I voted for Bush, as did my roommate, two guys across the hall from me, and my RA. I don't know how the rest of my dorm broke down. We're all 18-20.

Badnarik. I had friends and acquaintances voting every which other way.

The draft stuff was pure FUD, and didn't worry me.
