Left Targets Immature Voters

Recent reports show that, despite the increasingly kitschy campaign ads from the left (called by some pundits an attempt to lure younger, more immature voters), the campaign for President Barack Obama lacks youth support in key battleground States.

A survey of college-aged voters conducted by Sky News in Ohio, a political battleground State, shows Obama failing to energize young voters with the “rock star” persona he touted in 2008. Many young voters polled said that Obama’s youth appeal has been largely exposed as fraudulent to younger voters after four years of policy that doesn’t match.

From the article:

The president has been campaigning hard for the youth vote in Ohio, which is widely seen as a must-win state for both candidates.

But some students at Bowling Green State University (BGSU) told Sky News Mr Obama had failed to recreate the rock star appeal of his historic 2008 campaign, when hyped-up voters aged under 30 formed a vital part of his achievement.

The president still attracts a larger share of young voters than Mitt Romney, polls suggest, but he is now only polling with a slight overall lead over his rival in Ohio. That means he needs every vote he can get and with each one he loses, he is more exposed to Mr Romney’s gains in other areas.

Slipping youth support appears to be driving the left into a frenzy to create ads of little political value that seem to serve most as a ploy for a chuckle to cement the candidate in the minds of younger, less informed and less politically active Americans.

Like this “message from the greatest generation” from Michael Moore:
