Headline: Young Voters Prove Politically Relevant

Obama's victory in Iowa might ignite passion in a generation of voters otherwise unlikely to participate in politics. Almost a quarter of Democratic participants interviewed in the entrance poll were under 30 years old, up from 2004. The total youth turnout rose to 13 percent in 2008 from four percent in 2004 and four percent in 2000.

Of the under-30 vote, Obama got four times more votes than either John Edwards or Hillary Clinton. This accounted for 28 percent of Obama's support.

If young voters continue to come out in record-high numbers, this demographic may receive unusual attention during the general election. Watch Obama's Iowa victory speech (above) to see if he inspires you too!
