Not all news in Florida rosy for Obama

Young voters, despite the primary trail enthusiasm, are turning out, in the Sunshine State at least, at typically low levels. Despite an Obama GOTV push aimed at college and university campuses, they’re voting below their statewide percentage numbers in early voting.

Now, that said, I don't know if this is peculiar to Florida, or if youth turnout is at its usual low level across the country in early-voting states.

If it is national, then pollsters probably need to tweak their polls as we head to the finish line.
