WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE GENERATION OF PERMANENT DEMOCRATS?:

Democrats Confront Coalition Strains (PETER WALLSTEN and JONATHAN WEISMAN, 11/05/09, WSJ)

Voters ages 18 to 29, who made up more than one in five of the 2008 electorate in Virginia and voted overwhelmingly for the president, were just 10% of voters there Tuesday; those who went to the polls backed the Republican, Bob McDonnell, by a wide margin.

White House senior adviser David Axelrod said the 2010 elections would almost certainly revolve around Mr. Obama's agenda. He added the president will have an easier time using his popularity to win votes for Democrats if the candidates help the president with his legislative agenda. "You're not going to excite those voters by running away," he said. "You're going to excite them by helping create success."


Young people don't care about health care. They don't need any. That's why reform has to force them to buy it. It's just a tax on them and even youngsters hate taxes.
