I believe the so called youth vote/millenials will not turn out in high numbers for obama. They really like being able to buy things and than only happens if they, or their parents, have jobs. You know..jobs...that three letter word according to Joe Biden.
Younger voters shift from Obama
Once thought to be solidly behind President Barack Obama, younger voters burdened by a bleak employment picture, high gas prices and student loan debt are being aggressively wooed by the Democrat and his likely Republican challenger, Mitt Romney.
In 2008, Obama had a 34-point advantage over Republican Sen. John McCain among voters under age 30. He won about two-thirds of the vote in that age group.
But a new Harvard poll suggests the president may face a harder sales job with younger voters this time around. Obama led Romney by 12 points among those ages 18-24, according to the survey. Among those in the 25-29 age group, Obama held a 23-point advantage.
Its an opening Republicans hope to exploit by focusing on young peoples disillusionment with the candidate who promised hope and change.
