    Young Americans are turning against Barack Obama and Obamacare, according to a new survey of millennials, people between the ages of 18 and 29 who are vital to the fortunes of the president and his signature health care law. The most startling finding of Harvard University's Institute of Politics: A majority of Americans under age 25--the youngest millennials--would favor throwing Obama out of office.

    We keep hearing about what I like to call the Holy Grail theory of demographic change.

I don’t have any solid, irrefutable evidence that it’s happening, but Harvard’s Institute of Politics has just come out with a new survey of Millennials — whom they define as those aged 18 to 29 today — and its findings don’t provide a lot...
