“Biden Made a Play for Young Voters. It Worked — and Helped Democrats Keep the Senate”

Behind its firewall, Bloomberg has an analysis of the decisive role young voters appear to have played in key Senate races, most prominently Nevada’s. The article summarizes this publicly available analysis from Circle at Tufts University.

As summarized by Bloomberg:

“Twenty-seven percent of voters aged 18 to 29 cast ballots in last week’s elections, the second-highest turnout in three decades, according to the analysis.”

“Voters under 30 were decisive in Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez Masto’s win in Nevada — which officially secured the party’s hold on the chamber. And Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock might not have been able to force a December runoff against Republican challenger Herschel Walker without them.”
