Paul Won Majority of Youth Vote

Tuesday, 10 Jan 2012 09:41 PM

New Hampshire primary winner Mitt Romney topped his GOP opponents among those who consider themselves most conservative but fell far behind Rep. Ron Paul among the young; a group that helped propel President Barack Obama to victory in 2008.

Exit polls reported by CBS News showed that Romney grabbed 33 percent of the 21 percent of voters identified as very conservative, with Santorum at 26 percent, Rep. Paul at 18, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at 17, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman at 5 and Texas Gov. Rick Perry at 1 percent.

Of the 9 percent of New Hampshire voters ages 18 to 24, Paul grabbed 47 percent of the vote with Romney at 26, Huntsman at 14, Santorum at 7 and Gingrich at 3.
