16. so why did Bush lose among younger voters ?
Kerry got over 60 percent of voters under 30.

in 2000 Bush and Gore split the vote.

another thing is that liberal students don't always register with a party even though they will mostly support Democrats, especially at national and state levels. this is because many work in local areas where the competition is between different liberals who can be socialist,green,democrat, indie etc.

and many liberals work on specific issues or causes rather than overall party. for example gay rights, environment, anti war or some other thing.
