More republican lies.This is hardly a surprise.
A lot of the 18-24 year old voters from 2008, that swooned and cheered and cried in overwrought ecstasy over the former "Hope and Change" candidate back then, are starting to realize that they are still living in their parents' homes four years later, unable to get any kind of start in the miserable and uncertain economy that has gotten no better in nearly four years of Obama's presidency.
And more and more of them are starting to feel that, with the election of more and more stop-the-wild-spending TEA Party candidates, the Republican party might finally be changing its old Bush-era ways, and finally be the one to back, to straighten things out.
More and more, people who backed Obama in 2008, a are turning away from him in 2012.
Poll: Is the youth vote slowly turning to Romney?

Yesterday, I wondered whether the almost 17 percent youth unemployment rate would do anything to check the type of overwhelming support President Obama received from young people in 2008. Apparently, there’s ‘hope’ for us young people yet — Obama received a whopping 66 percent of the youth vote the first time around, and while he still has the lead over Romney, that level of support is slipping pretty drastically. From the Wash Examiner:
Pollster John Zogby of JZ Analytics told Secrets Tuesday that Romney received 41 percent in his weekend poll of 1,117 likely voters, for the first time crossing the 40 percent mark. What’s more, he said that Romney is the only Republican of those who competed in the primaries to score so high among 18-29 year olds.
“This is the first time I am seeing Romney’s numbers this high among 18-29 year olds,” said Zogby. “This could be trouble for Obama who needs every young voter he can get.” …
In his latest poll, Obama receives just 49 percent of the youth vote when pitted against Romney, who received 41 percent.
Yup — it lookin’ more and more like the youths are increasingly disillusioned with the poor results of President Obama’s policies....
