Younger voters voted “drastically differently than older voters,” a new study by CIRCLE, which studies youth voter trends, found Thursday.
They supported Hillary Clinton more than any other age bloc. But there were differences depending on race, gender and geography.
National exit polls found Clinton with 55 percent of the 18- to 29-year-old vote to 37 percent for Donald Trump Trump. Voters over 40 gave Trump majorities, and he won 53 percent of people over 50.
Never miss a local story.
CIRCLE reported 43 percent of young whites voted for Clinton. Black young voters gave her 83 percent support, while 70 percent of young Latinos were for Clinton.
And the national exit poll suggested there were more young voters this year who backed a third party candidate, didn’t vote for anyone, or chose not to answer the poll question.
Clinton is ahead in the popular vote with 47.7 percent to Trump’s 47.5 percent.
