The New York Times says there's an unusually high interest in this election among young people. What the Times doesn't mention is that Kerry's winning that youth vote. In Newsweek's most recent poll, Bush led Kerry overall 49%-43% in a three-way race -- but Kerry led 46%-43% among 18-29-year-olds. And Nader gets 7%, so the anti-Bush vote is a clear majority.

Major-party presidential campaigns rarely fight for the youth vote, but this would be a good year for Kerry to buck the conventional wisdom.
