Along Party Lines: An in Depth look at Student Issue Ideology

As the presidential race tightens and the primary season trudges onward, one defining characteristic of this election cycle may ultimately prove to be the guiding force for a new direction in Washington-- student activism. Having already demonstrated influence in both the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, youth electoral participation has seen dramatic increases this election cycle. Such a trend can be readily identified as nothing more than a unified response to the ineptness of Bush administration policies toward students and the issues they most care about. With this in mind I would strongly recommend that all potential candidates take a look at the table below. Because as the influence grows, student issues may prove to be the deciding factor for all future elections.
