  • TITLE: An Examination of U.S. Presidential Candidates and How They Mobilize Youth

    AUTHORS: Michael Pomante

    KEYWORDS: Presidential Election, Presidential Candidates, Youth, Mobilization, Voter Turnout

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Political Science, Vol.7 No.4, September 29, 2017

    ABSTRACT: It is well known that American youth, those 18 - 24 years old, have abysmal turnout rates in all elections. Despite the traditional poor performance of this age group, there have been several presidential elections (1992 and 2008) where their turnout has been significantly higher than average. The objective of this research is to explore aspects of U.S. presidential candidates and their campaign activities which lead to higher rates of youth mobilization. Through an examination of newspaper articles over four presidential election cycles, the research uncovers that younger candidates who use new methods of engagement positively influence the turnout rate of youth. Elections which had the greatest levels of youth turnout had significantly younger candidates whose campaigns directly targeted youth through new means. On the other hand, the two elections with the lowest levels of youth mobilization lacked younger candidates whose campaigns failed to actively court young voters in any way.
