Voter Abstinence...

This is from Colbert's 10/1 show. Those wondering why he had John McCain approving this message, click here.
"This year, those young people are of great interest. Allegedly they will be mobilized in huge numbers, and allegedly they will vote strongly for Barack Obama. The latest available Gallup weekly estimate (July 28-Aug 3) shows Obama leading 56%-35% among 18-29 year olds, while McCain leads 46%-37% among those 65 and older.

Why do you think younger voters tend to vote Democratic? Is it an effect of age or generation?
