One of the best stories I read from voting day was this one.   I can’t quote it; you have to read the whole thing.

And this story falls into an interesting data point discussed by Nate Silver: Barack Obama outperformed John Kerry among parents.

Conversley [sic], there is a hidden source of strength in this table that hasn’t been talked much about before: Obama markedly overperformed Kerry among parents. In a sense, it was those people who have most reason to be concerned about the future who voted for Obama: people who are young themeslves, or people who have young children at home.
