According to Zogby, Mitt Romney now over 40 percent with 18 to 29 year olds as younger voters slowly realize this wasn’t the Hope & Change they were looking for:
For the first time since he began running for president, Republican Mitt Romney has the support of over 40 percent of America’s youth vote, a troubling sign for President Obama who built his 2008 victory with the overwhelming support of younger, idealistic voters.
Pollster John Zogby of JZ Analytics told Secrets Tuesday that Romney received 41 percent in his weekend poll of 1,117 likely voters, for the first time crossing the 40 percent mark. What’s more, he said that Romney is the only Republican of those who competed in the primaries to score so high among 18-29 year olds.
“This is the first time I am seeing Romney’s numbers this high among 18-29 year olds,” said Zogby. “This could be trouble for Obama who needs every young voter he can get.”
Zogby speculates that Romney’s selection of 42-year-old Rep. Paul Ryan helped turn more younger voters to him. “It could be his youthfulness,” said Zogby of Ryan. Plus, he said, more younger voters are becoming libertarian, distrustful of current elected officials and worried that they are going to get stuck with the nation’s looming fiscal bill.
What’s with this “fiscal bill” talk? Don’t the kids know that George Clooney and Sarah Jessica Parker are still on the Obama train? What’s happening to the mindless obedience to the Hollywood left that Obama fell in love with four years ago?
How have over 40 percent of 18 to 29 year olds managed to escape Anna Wintour’s “be my human sacrifice for Hope & Change” tractor beam?
