Rut-Roh Obama & Dems, Fewer Young Voters See Themselves as Democrats

 

Even college age kids turning against Democrats?

Less than two short years ago following the 2008 Presidential election of Barack Hussein Obama, every one stated that the Republican party was finished, had no hope and no future. It would appear that the reports of the demise of the Republicans were a bit premature.

Enter Barack Obama, his socialist czars, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, $787 billion stimulus, Obama Care, record federal deficits, out of control spending and the most radical White House in the history of the United States. According to a NY Times article, now even college age kids are turning against Obama and Democrats.

The college vote is up for grabs this year — to an extent that would have seemed unlikely two years ago, when a generation of young people seemed to swoon over Barack Obama.

Though many students are liberals on social issues, the economic reality of a weak job market has taken a toll on their loyalties: far fewer 18- to 29-year-olds now identify themselves as Democrats compared with 2008.

“Is the recession, which is hitting young people very hard, doing lasting or permanent damage to what looked like a good Democratic advantage with this age group?” asked Scott Keeter, the director of survey research at the Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan group. “The jury is still out.” 

What a reversal of fortune for Democrats. Is the youuth vote leaving the Democrats, or will they merely just stay home?

As stated by the Gay Patriot,  it “seems the surge in support among young people for Obama was based more on his personality and the imagery of his campaign than on the candidate’s (carefully concealed*) ideology”.

This is why it is important to know your candidate, not just get caught up in an image and catch phrase of “Hope & Change”. The youth appears to be paying more attention to Obama and his policies and how they directly affect them. It is they that will be paying for his ridiculous spending programs. I guess they missed that fact when they were voting for him in 2008.

For the record turn out and people that Obama reached in 2008 … 2012 seems like it will pale in comparison. The likihood that Obama will be a one term President seems more and more certain every day.

      2008 was NOT record turnout as far as overall TOTAL number of voters voting. The Obamessiah cult will want you to think so, but it wasn’t. Maybe there was a record youth turnout (not sure about that), probably a record minority turnout, but there certainly wasn’t any “unprecedented” level of total voter turnout in 2008.

      Yeah… It was “way cool” to walk around sipping Starbucks hating on Dick Cheney, sharing Vegan recipes, and fretting over the “global warming” crisis, HA.

      BUT NOW JACK & JILL ARE OUT TRYING TO FIND JOBS!

      You see children, it takes $$ to live on “Whole Foods” and drive a Hybrid SUV.

      These kids are FINALLY getting it…

      Well, my God, Oprah (the Killer Whale) endorsed him. That has to make him good for our country. After all Oprah is the final authority on politics, spiritual matters, Prada shoes and life in general. Just sayin’

      Ummm, Obama has a personality? Since when?
      ______________
      SM: Well, Obama did put on the Dog and with a complicit MSM wooed people into believing he was the Obamamessiah and the Second Coming. We all know what the Good Book says about being aware of false prophets.

      The 2008 election only proves that you can fool some of the people all of the time. They got caught up in those catchy slogans and symbolism. They forgot everything they ever learned about judging people by the company they keep and their recent past history. “Hope and change” were an ideal.

      Politics is soooo corrupt – who wouldn’t want to believe it could and would change. It’s gotten to the point that we believe excuses for Tax Cheat Timmy and Kathleen Sibelus not paying their taxes. So what if Billy couldn’t keep his zipper shut? Who cares that the education czar teaches man – boy love? Is there a clean politician anywhere?

      And now the political way to fight is to create dirt – most everyone will believe whatever nasty story you float because there is so much dirt in politics.
