GOP ticket sees bump from young voters
A poll this week by JZ Analytics showed that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, for the first time, had the support of more than 40 percent of America’s younger voters (those 18 to 29).
Some credit for that has to go to Romney’s selection of U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate. Ryan, 42, provides the ticket with a nice contrast to the older (65), more staid Romney.
This is just one poll but the findings are significant, not only because this same demographic went hard for President Barack Obama in 2008, but because it’s young voters who will be most affected by our nation’s fiscal policies in the years ahead.
The bill coming due as a result of our massive debt will be paid mostly by their generation and the generations to follow. Ryan understands that and has offered a serious, reasonable plan to change our course.
