The Republicans lost the youth vote for a simple reason. To use a college metaphor...the Republicans and their policies acted like the super snooty fraternities and sororities who tell the vast majority of college students that they are the "other people" - they just don't fit in and deserve to be part of the privileged elite. Funny how the unwanted (or unwashed in Republican eyes) can hit back and make it count.

It’s been more than a week since the election, and everyone is still Monday-morning-quarterbacking Governor Romney’s campaign. It’s annoying. Romney ran an honest and positive campaign, and we wish him the best.

From the beginning of this race, we said the Conservative Movement and our candidates needed to speak directly to young Americans.

We didn’t, and we lost the White House largely because of this lack of effort.

Romney would’ve won the election had he won the same percentage of the youth vote--45 percent--that George Bush had won...
