Majority of 18- To 29-Year-Olds Think Bush Favors Reinstating the Draft

About half of the country’s 18- to 29-year-olds believe that President George W. Bush wants to reinstate the military draft, even though he and his challenger, Senator John F. Kerry have each insisted they oppose the idea, the University of Pennsylvania’s National Annenberg Election Survey show.

Older respondents were more likely than younger respondents to know that neither Republican candidate President George W. Bush nor Democratic candidate Senator John Kerry favors the draft.
