Why did the youth (finally) vote?

Greg Mankiw, Harvard economist and former chairman of Bush's council of economic advisers:
It was largely noneconomic issues. These particular students told me they preferred the lower tax, more limited government, freer trade views of McCain, but they were voting for Obama on the basis of foreign policy and especially social issues like abortion. The choice of a social conservative like Palin as veep really turned them off McCain.
The future is brighter than I thought.
