How GOP can win young voters

“GOP politicians need to stop turning off younger voters by living up to their stereotype of intolerance, and they need to explain why their agenda is better for young people,” columnist Jennifer Rubin wrote. That agenda, she said, should be “built on optimism, growth, opportunity and self-determination.” She noted that President Reagan “won the youth vote as the oldest elected president because he was offering something fresh, a vision larger than self-interest and a demeanor of openness. That, not crabbiness and perpetual anger at foes (imagined and otherwise), is an outlook worth emulating.”
