True enough. Here's an article that just appeared:

Youth turnout in election biggest in 20 years

Young Americans voted in the largest numbers in at least 20 years in 
congressional elections, energized by the Iraq war and giving a boost to 
Democrats, pollsters said on Wednesday.

About 24 percent of Americans under the age of 30, or at least 10 million 
young voters, cast ballots in Tuesday's elections that saw Democrats make 
big gains in Congress. That was up 4 percentage points from the last 
mid-term elections in 2002.

Rock the Vote, a youth-and-civics group, said young voters favored Democrats 
by a 22-point margin, nearly three times the margin Democrats earned among 
other age groups and dealing a potentially decisive blow to Republicans in 
tight races.
