President Bush’s approval rating among 18- to 24-year-olds is a rock-bottom 20 percent, according to a Bloomberg/Los Angeles Times poll — compared with about 40 percent among adults in the same poll. That’s not an encouraging sign for GOP elders hoping to attract a new generation of voters.
"The very cultural issues the president wants to use to rally his party’s base are exactly the issues that are alienating younger voters," said Ross Baker, a political scientist at Rutgers University in New Jersey. "Across a broad swath of social issues, younger Americans see the administration as being out of line with what they believe."
