Enthusiasm Craters for Obama Amongst Young Voters

The problem with young voters is that they usually vote with their hearts instead of their heads. That is until it turns around and bites them in the butt. It is a symptom of youth rebellion. Young people usually learn from their mistakes instead of the experiences and wisdom of older people. They want to feel like they are going their own way instead of bowing to wiser, more experienced, leadership. One of the results of this mentality is that their mistakes effect the whole country when it comes to supporting bad leaders. Obama is energetic and charismatic. That appeals to young people. Unfortunately, that is about all the positive characteristics he possess when it comes to leadership.

And before all the young people jump on me as a "worn out old fart", remember, I used to be young too. I know how young people act and think because I have not forgotten my "I know, I can do it on my own" youth as well.
A new poll out shows that the youth vote that helped propel President Obama to the White House in 2008 won't be there for the Democrat to bank on this fall.

Young voters have historically preferred Democrats, but Obama's share of the youth vote in 2008 was historically large. The poll, conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute in conjunction with the Berkley Center at Georgetown University, finds that 48 percent of young voters prefer the President. In 2008, though, Obama won 66 percent of that youth vote - a massive drop in support for the President.

The youth...
