According to the Harvard Institute of Politics, Americans aged 18-29 favor President Obama by a 31 point margin. The same study, however, suggests that young people who like Mitt Romney in the 2012 election will show up to the polls in far greater percentages than those who like Obama. Romney voters who will “definitely vote” in this election cycle outnumber such Obama voters by a ten percent margin.
No wonder young people aren’t showing up to vote for President Obama. Their chances of finding employment under the Obama economy are extraordinarily low. Why bother showing up to back a candidate who wants to prolong that agony for another four years?
