Inside The Youth Voter’s Heads

Just had enough time today to skim a few websites, and found this gem: Survey of Young Americans’ Attitudes toward Politics and Public Service

It reinforces what we’ve been saying on this site for years about Da’ Yutes™ in general. This obviously does NOT apply to our youthful pups here in the Empire. They generally don’t respond to reality, but prefer their politics to center on appearances. They are NOT reachable by normal political methods because of this, and conservative ideology can’t be cool, because it involves ‘boring’ political points. Ogabelini managed to capture their attention long enough for them to show-up at the polls in numbers that put him over the top.

Most telling is that a clear majority of these folks stated they intended to vote for Obama in ’12, yet significant respondents, on the order of 35% are undecided. Our side in both groups skews down ~13% and that is well outside their stated MOE at 2-3% . I’m still looking through the survey, but it seems the area where Obama’s DISAPPROVAL is high, is about his handling of the economy and also 39/38% responded that the country is heading in the wrong direction, with the plurality of responses here were ‘Don’t Know’ at 40/35%.

A quick look at this clearly tells us that we have a big task ahead, if we have any hope of shifting the youth vote. I did find it very interesting that a massive majority never participates in any form of political discussion or advocation. I think this tells us that the ‘COOL’ factor is still the major reason they continue to support Obama, but the fact that they don’t participate in politics makes changing their opinions very, very difficult, and all indications seem to show they’re back to carefully ignoring deciding on issues before election-day. In summary, here you have fiddy-twoers still as clueless and apathetic as they were in 2008, when they bought an inexperienced, radical community organizer’s glitz and ‘coolness’ to make a historic moment in history (their narrative) happen.

I don’t think history will treat them well in a few years.

    After reading this…..the first thought coming to mind is there are a lot of young people whose asses life hasn’t gotten around to kicking yet. I know far more former liberals than I do former conservatives…..a few years in a work force, especially non-governmental, tends to teach you…….
    Simply put, if they choose a given course, let them answer for it, in full. If they cast blame and refuse, they are doomed. Simply put, I no longer care. I look after my concerns and those feeling as I do. Our economy will no longer support what they seek……
    I have noted a great many young people concerned now, almost always those young in the work force….

    Their Dear Leader The Kenyon Klingon Fucker will addressing his followers drooling brain dead fiddy-twoers at 2100 tonight.

    I wonder what new Five Year Plan he’ll come up with this time to fuck us even harder.

    Yes, the young that have yet to figure out the difference between their ass and a hat will vote for the lightbringer……. If they vote. Bambi ain’t cool like he was 3 years ago, unless things greatly in the next year I will be shocked if they turn out in numbers even close to what we saw last cycle. Yeah they tell pollsters that they will vote, and vote for Obama, but that’s kinda like me telling myself every year as my New Year’s resolution that I’m gonna cut down on the salt and eat more salads.

    Did you notice the number of “wrong track” voters and worried about employment/economy voters who are still voting for this grabasstic communist regime? What do they think is causing the economic problems in the first place, “teh greeeeedy rich?”

    It’s natural selection at work on a socio-political scale. These dumbazzes are already getting f’d with a big, studded clue-bat the size of the unemployment numbers and the deficit, together, yet they’re so stupid, they don’t even yelp–they just keep bending over and taking it, ’cause they said on YouTube it was the cool thing to do–you know, like letting people kick you in the balls, ghost riding, planking, etc. Now if only individual level natural selection would kick in hard, we’d be getting somewhere. Thank God for your pups and mine, Your Rottieness. I’m so sorry I didn’t do more to make this world a better place for them, but I’m so blessed and honored that they are the kind of people who probably will make the world a better place for themselves and others, at least within their personal reaches, in the future.

    Rep. David Wu could be eligible for pension and benefits worth more than $1 million in his lifetime, according to an analysis by the National Taxpayers Union.

    Wu, D-Ore., first elected in 1998, announced Tuesday he will leave Congress. His departure follows a report in The Oregonian last week that an 18-year-old woman complained to his office about an “unwanted sexual encounter.”

    The National Taxpayers Union, a non-partisan organization, calculated that Wu could qualify for a pension worth about $851,000 over his lifetime.
