118,296,5 502 votes. The 1/5 of the total vote for Obama coming from the youth demographic (18-29) - even if it might have been generated more by antipathy towards Romney than support for Obama - is encouraging. Let us hope a similiar dynamic emerges by 2015 here in Canada at the very least in terms of antipathy towards Harper. There are signs everywhere - such as Power Shift 2012 - but will it be enough to offset the suburban immigrant and rural voter demographics courted aggressively by the Harperites? Moot since first past the post and new seat distrbution favour the Harper Regime. A widespread coordinated effort is required.
