Young people are the ones who can see what’s going on. They’re not afraid of the truth plus they loathe hypocrisy. They freak when they find out about abortion and they flock, unreportedly, to anti abortion rallies and to things like the Popes semiannual youth visit- these are kids resourceful enough to raise thousands of $s for the trip (NOT government funds, you can be sure).
they are hammered in college with lib think but the smart ones are finding alternatives, not dreaming of incurring a no job - hundred or so $K debt just to get hammered with such.
Nice anecdotal thoughts, but the stats tell us otherwise: the young vote more liberally than anyone else.
If Obama had an unprecedented drop in support from his first to second term, that most likely is simply due to his having had a super-unprecedented level of support among the young to start with.
