Young voters not enamored with either party, but especially GOP

“It is not that young voters are enamored of the Democratic Party. They simply dislike the Republican Party more,” according to a recent report by the College Republican National Committee. Actually, they dislike the GOP quite a bit more. A recent Washington Post-ABC News poll that found that 65 percent of Americans ages 18 to 29 think the Republican Party is out of touch with concerns of most people today, while 47 percent of them think the Democratic Party is out of touch. However, 58 percent of younger Americans think President Obama is “in touch” with concerns of most people, which is one reason why he dominated the youth vote the past two elections.
