Young People, Media Use, and Voter Turnout:
An Analysis of the 2000 National Election Study
Abstract
Young Americans’ non-engagement in politics has been raised as a critical issue for the
last 10 years. People claim that young people today are more ignorant, apathetic, and
cynical about politics than at any other time in the past. A recent report from the
Washington Post
quoted a young voter from Arkansas as saying, "The young people
don’t feel connected to the candidates, because they don’t campaign to them. And the
candidates don’t feel connected to the young people, because they think they don’t vote."
Using the National Election Study (NES) data, this study seeks to discover the
relationships between various factors that influence voting behavior and voter turnout
among young people aged 18 to 35 in the 2000 presidential election. Using the
hierarchical regression, this study tried to predict how much of variance in voter turnout
among young Americans was explained by certain factors. This study further develops a
profile of the young people who are likely to turn out to vote on an election day using
the discriminant analysis.
