Younger vote splits; wealthier back Bush

Young voters in Arizona didn't give John Kerry the same boost that they gave him nationally.

In fact, exit polling conducted on Election Day showed Arizona voters age 18-29 split, 50 percent for President Bush and 48 percent for Kerry.

Nationally, exit polls indicated that young people who voted strongly supported Kerry over Bush, while they were evenly split between Bush and Democrat Al Gore four years ago.

A vigorous push on college campuses by both parties and national mobilization drives had raised expectations that 2004 would be the year of the youth vote.

The exit polls were conducted for The Associated Press by Edison Media Research and Mitofsky International. In Arizona, they questioned 1,907 voters statewide.

The polls have a sampling error margin of plus or minus 3 percentage points for the overall sample, larger for subgroups.


More groupings


The exit polls in Arizona also showed:


Those earning more than $100,000 a year leaned more heavily toward Bush.


Men showed stronger support for Bush, 58 percent compared to 52 percent of the women.


Kerry did well with Arizona's Latinos, earning votes from 56 percent of those polled. The group did not survey a significant enough number of Asian and Black voters for results.


Bush's strongest supporters by age bracket came from those ages 30 to 44, who showed 61 percent support.


The few voters who earned $200,000 or more leaned toward Bush with 63 percent. Kerry's biggest support by income came from voters earning $15,000 to $30,000, with 57 percent.


Although only 17 percent of those polled listed themselves as White conservative Protestants, an overwhelming majority supported Bush at 89 percent.

Earl de Berge, research director for Phoenix-based Behavior Research Center, said exit polls generally provide a snapshot of a certain time in an election day, but he found few surprises in this polling.
