Here is some fascinating info from the Iowa caucuses passed on by a friend. Convention wisdom would have us believe that Barack Obama’s support is strong only amongst young voters. This Iowa caucuses data from CNN proves otherwise.

  • Obama beat Clinton among women 35% to 30%
  • Obama beat Edwards among voters in union households 30%-24%
  • Obama beat Clinton and Edwards among voters of almost every income level (Obama and Clinton tied among voters who make $15-30,000)
  • As many voters age 17-29 as voters 65 and older participated last night — in previous years senior participation has been 5-times greater than younger voters.
  • Obama beat Edwards and Clinton among voters who want change (51%-20%-19%)
  • Obama beat Clinton and Edwards (34%-30%-27%) among voters who say health care is the most important issue
  • Obama won among those who said the economy was the most important issue (36%-26%-26%)
  • Obama won over Clinton and Edwards (35%-26%-17%) among those who said Iraq was the most important issue
  • Obama won among voters across the ideological spectrum – winning among liberals, moderates and conservatives
  • Obama won among high income and lower income voters among voters with household income below $50,000 (34%-32%-19%) and among those over $50,000 (41%-19%-28%)
