This army of young first voter gravitates toward the Democrat! party in a ratio of 2 to 1 outsid the' south, '.and in the south' th ratiq Is even higher.

A representative cross-section was selected for interviewing ant this question was put to them: "In politics, as of today, do you consider yourself 'a Republican Democrat, Progressive or Inde- perident?" Here -is how first voters out side the traditionally Democratic south classify -themselves: Democrats, lead Republican 21% "Democratic 43 Progressive 2 Independent 29 Others don't know; 5 100% The very great importance of the young vote is evidenced by the fact that during the four-year pejlpa 'b'etween recent presidential elections, a total'of approximately 9,200,000. came of voting age. The proportion of young people who participate inÂ« elections is : smaller the young group is nevertheless a "sizable factor .in ,any election. The Democratic leanings of the young are not'a new factor in the, political situation. Young voters nave been,pro-Democratic since the early days of the New .Deal.
