  •  Should compare 22-34's vs 18-30's from 2008 (0+ / 0-)

    The same people that fit into the segment in 2008 have moved up and new voters have filled in the bottom 4 years.

    The new 18-22's did not have George Bush and Dick Cheney to motivate them.

    Add into that the tremendous disappointment in Obama as he abandoned the base and refused to correct Bush and Cheney's evil.

    Obviously Obama no longer cares about ANY voters.  He is looking to his future as a corporate speaker, foundation/think tank member or lobbyist.

    In the end Obama was never a real Democrat, nor one who could be counted on to stick his neck out for anything meaningful.

    He only wanted to sit in the chair and go into the history books.

    Like so many before them, the youth were fooled and they know it.
