More bad news for the failed president. The mind-numbed Obama Zombies probably won’t be coming out in droves this year. Massive unemployment typically has that effect.
A much lower percentage of young registered voters are enthusiastic about voting this fall than they were in 2008, according to a new Gallup poll.
The figures are a clear danger sign for the Obama campaign, which benefitted from young voters four years ago and is counting on them again in 2012.
Just 58 percent of registered voters between the ages of 18 and 29 say they are “definitely likely” to vote, according to new analysis from Gallup, down from 78 percent who said they were in October 2008. While comparing voter interest between July and October is not ideal, those numbers should concern the Obama campaign, since young voters are a cornerstone of their electoral coalition.
This will probably take another masterstroke from Team Obama to win them back. Considering the utter desperation of the past few days, they’ll probably be warning that anyone under 30 will be exterminated if they don’t vote the right way. An no more free contraception to boot!
