But his message isn’t working. While the Obama campaign is focusing on free contraception, young people are focused on their empty wallets. A Generation Opportunity poll showed that 89 percent of young people say that the poor economy is impacting their daily life, and 84 percent of those surveyed said they have either delayed, or plan to delay, major life changes because of the weak economy. The Obama economy has economically devastated young people, which is why the polls show that President Obama has only lost, not gained, their support.
The President’s economic record is sinking his ship, and no one wants to go down with him--even his most loyal youth supporters. We can expect President Obama to have a rude awakening on November 6th when the youth polls are closer than he hoped.
