The Young And The Restless: Many Young People Are Disillusioned With President Obama

Charlie Cook: Young Voters Lack “Passion And Energy For Obama” Compared To 2008. “Let’s focus for now on just one leg of the stool, the young voters. Visit any college campus today, and you are likely to sense a lack of passion and energy for Obama. It’s far from clear that he can reproduce the unusually strong turnout among younger voters that he sparked in 2008 or match the 66 percent performance level he achieved then. The data back up the doubts. Gallup tracking surveys in January and February recorded Obama’s job-approval rating at 52 percent and 54 percent, respectively, among 18-to-29-year-olds. The polling suggests he would win the majority of the youth vote, but not anything close to 66 percent.” (Charlie Cook, “Young And Restless,” National Journal’s " The Cook Report,” 3/31/12)
