Domke: Turnout Hopeful for Obama

First time voters comprise 11% of those turning out today. 17% of voters are between the age of 18 and 29. With Obama favored by large margins with young and first-time voters, those are good numbers for the Democrat. 13% of those voting are African-American, up from 11% four years ago. With Obama winning 96% of African-Americans that too provides an important increase over 2004.
