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.
