image for Young Voters Failing To Turn Out On Super Tuesday, Early Exit Polls Show: Only 13 Percent Are 18-29 Years Old

Early exit polls appear to show that Bernie Sanders' promise to bring young voters to the polls is falling flat.

But according to early exit polls, the Vermont senator’s hopes appear to be falling flat across — at least in 12 of the 14 states casting ballots — on March 3.

That is 10 percentage points fewer than the second-least likely voters — the 30-44 age group, which made up 23 percent of Tuesday’s electorate, according to the NBC News poll.

The exit poll was conducted across all of the Super Tuesday voting states barring Utah and Arkansas.

In South Carolina, where Biden won in a landslide, the youngest voting demographic made up only 11 percent.

Sanders won the Nevada caucus, where young voters made up 17 percent of the turnout.

In Nevada, popular vote numbers were not available, but in the caucus, Sanders’ support declined 13 percent from 2016. »
