CONTACT NUMBER: (If available)

=====================================================================

YOUNG VOTER TURN OUT ON THE RISE IN VIRGINIA.

THE CHANGE COULD SIGNAL TROUBLE FOR REPUBLICANS NATIONWIDE. THE WASHINGTON POST REPORTED FRIDAY THAT YOUNG VOTERS CAME OUT IN HISTORIC NUMBERS IN VIRGINIA'S GUBERNATORIAL ELECTION EARLIER THIS MONTH. THEY OVERWHELMINGLY SUPPORTED DEMOCRAT RALPH NORTHAM, WHO WON BY 9 POINTS. REPUBLICANS WERE ALREADY WRESTLING WITH AN AGING DEMOGRAPHIC. BUT ANALYSTS SAY THE UNPOPULAR ACTIONS OF PRESIDENT TRUMP ARE PUSHING AWAY YOUNGER GENERATIONS.

YOUNG VOTERS ARE OFTEN AMONG THE LEAST-ENGAGED. BUT THEY HAD A TURNOUT RATE OF 34?PERCENT THIS YEAR. THAT'S UP FROM 26 PERCENT IN THE PREVIOUS GOVERNOR'S RACE AND DOUBLE THE TURNOUT IN 2009.

BOB HOLSWORTH, A LONGTIME VIRGINIA POLITICAL SCIENTIST, SAID THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS BECOME TOXIC TO A LOT OF YOUNG VOTERS, AND TRUMP HAS EXACERBATED THE TREND.
