Compared to Republicans, young voters are a much bigger share of the Democratic electorate, and young and old Democrats disagree about the candidates more than young and old Republicans disagree.

In Michigan Tuesday, a two-way race between Biden and Sanders, 77 percent of under-30 voters chose Sanders and 73 percent of over-65 voters chose Biden.If Democrats want to win in November, activists who are young and old will need to get out the vote among their peer groups.
