Lol. They need to show "young people" as a percent of the total returned ballots. Early voting is up massively across the board. But if young people made up 20% of early voting in 2016 and 20% of early voting in 2020, then they didn't increase as a percentage of the total electorate.

Also, in Florida there was a massive increase in the number of vote by mail requests on the Dem side that wasn't matched on the republican side. Because republicans are showing up in person for early voting and on election day.

This is just like the China Plague. Media selectively picks out a few numbers without providing any sort of context that makes them meaningful.

I see what you are saying but I just checked and Florida for example is only at 92.00% of 2016 Early Vote turnout yet the youth early vote has increased by 404%

Where did you "just check"? Is the 404% from the same source?
