Young Americans Lean Left
According to a poll conducted by MTV, CBS, and the New York Times, youth support in the next presidential election is split almost evenly between Barack Obama (18%) and Hillary Clinton(17%).
If the election were held today, a majority of 17 to 29-year-olds (54 percent) say they'd vote for the Democratic candidate, while 32 percent would vote Republican. (Source)Not so fast. What liberal pundits forget to tell you is that, young Americans are not as interested in politics as they make it seem. How else do you explain the 45% of the polled who said they were uninterested in any of the candidates? That's higher than all the people who indicated support for Clinton, Obama, Giuliani, Thompson, and Romney combined.
Understandably, young people don't trust the political landscape, and it'll take more than some exciting statistics to win over their trust and solidarity.
