In 2012, Obama won the youth vote 67 percent to 30 percent. Today, even the liberal media can't spin the fact that millennials are walking away from the President. A recent USA Today Pew Research Center poll indicates that only 45% of young Americans approve of the President's job performance, while 49% disapprove. An online poll from Harvard University's Institute of Politics cites the President's favorability among millennials is at a low of 41%, while 54% disapprove.
It's clear that young people are second guessing their support for this administration. They aren't signing up for Obamacare and they're losing trust in the their government. A year ago, more than two thirds of young Americans supported the President.
The 2014 midterms are still several months away, but these early polls should give GOP candidates some hope. Millennials are looking for an alternative to this administration.
The youth makes up a critical part of the electorate, and it's up to candidates in 2014 to present a common-sense, trustworthy, small government alternative that listens to the people and the addresses concerns of the next generation.
