An interesting poll conducted on young people (18-29) and some stark results.
The problems with the Republican brand among young people run deeper than Bush.Perhaps those of us who believe in smaller government are the dinosaurs of our time.
Young people are often cynical about politics, but believe in government. By a 68 – 28 percent
margin, voters would rather have a bigger government providing more services over a smaller
government providing fewer services. Even Republican young people prefer a larger, more
generous government (57 – 40 percent for bigger government with more services).
Young people adopt views diametrically opposed from the Republican Party on issues
as diverse as the war, global warming, gay marriage and, to some extent, illegal immigration as well. In fact, there is not a single issue in this survey where younger voters line up with the
Republican Party. [More]
