In fact a lot of 'em are probably surviving on student loans, an issue that Obama has been very vocal about supporting and controlling exorbitant interest rates, which I'm sure has not gone unnoticed... just like Romney's advice to simply "borrow from your family if you have to" (right, like everyone has daddies with deep pockets as he did)!

EXACTLY! They get back here at the end of September and will have JUST begun classes when the 1st debate is broadcast.

Go cry why don't you, I was being rhetorical, chill out...

I know you can't stop someone from voting at that age, but I really don't beleive most 18-24 yrs have enough life experiences to make meaningful votes....

Default No wonder. There is hope in Romney/Ryan. No hope with Obama/Biden

I have a feeling that most of the unemployed college graduates living in their parents' basement won't be too motivated to get out the vote for Saint HopeNChange.
I heard this too. Young people see no hope for their future with Obama. Only gloom.

Romney/Ryan are offering restoration and hope of a brighter future.

It's about jobs. Nothing else matters. Darth Barry is killing jobs. People who are entering the job force need to make a wise choice for their president.

Default Libertarian Gary Johnson at 24%+

If you really think Jon Stewart or Bill Maher will be able to get them to vote for Obama even when they can't get a job, that's laughable.

Moreover, a lot of young people are now part of the "Ron Paul or no one" crowd. Many of the ones who were old enough to vote and voted in 2008 probably voted for Obama; And they will not be voting for Obama this year.

polling shows Arizonans are overwhelmingly sick of the illegal immigration fiasco and disapprove of Obama's move after the SCOTUS ruling to not cooperate with Arizona.

Bill Maher is a Libertarian, so I'd guess he likes Libertarian Gary Johnson. The #1 request to whitehouse dot com is re-legalize cannabis ("marijuana"). Gary & Bill both favor that & now roughly 1 out of 6 in US (about 50 million) admit they are cannabis users. Gary Johnson campaign is selling Marleyboro mugs! He has a sensible immigration position as he viewed this up close as very popular 8 year guv of NM. He vetoed hundreds of bills, saved taxpayers over a billion. Gary will eliminate the IRS, replace income taxes

Obama is flipping to Gary Johnson's positions, but I don't trust Obama based on first term.

Most Ron Paulites will likely vote for Gary Johnson. Gary Johnson will be speaking at Paul Fest in Tampa, in about a week, just before RNC. His new jobs video is getting many raves. If you want real freedom & a candidate that cares about the 100% equally, he is best. Hard-working, honest, kind, very smart. He has no hate, but does have $1.25 million now, so even if they don't allow him in debates, he could buy a few radio & TV ads. Catch the excitement in his latest videos, each on a single topic. Best wishes!

No. I'm from the east coast and not very familiar with California. I'm just trying to find out which of the many leftist s-h-i-t-hole cities in CA that you live in.
