@NoahCRothman is an alright dude, but I can’t buy this ‘surprisingly’ bit.

OK, this I gotta push back on. From Hot Air:

Democrats ages 18 to 29, surprisingly, tend to disagree that the next Democratic nominee must pledge to continue down the course set by Obama. Those ages 30 to 44 strongly disagree with this assertion. Only 33 percent of Democratic voters in their 30s and early 40s think the next Democratic nominee must be an Obama Democrat. Similarly, voters who make less than $50,000 are not thrilled about a third term for Obama.

Bolding mine, and… why is this surprising?  Anybody who is going to be 18 in 2016 is going to be somebody who has spent the last eight years at school being fed federally-mandated slop that would start a prison riot.  That may not sound like a big deal to you, but then you haven’t been forced to eat that particular, nigh-literal, sh*t sandwich.

Gonna be an interesting tableau when the 2016 exit polls come in, let me tell you…

  1. the polls will just be part of the vast right-wing conspiracy, just like msnbc and the times are. ask carville, he’ll tell ya

  2. Best counter argument for the 18-29 year-olds is Think how awesome that school lunch program is and you want to continue down that road?

  3. Wait a sec, Moe.
    Did you .. just lay down a marker .. saying you expect the Dems *won’t* get their usual percentage of the “youth vote”?

    1. The Democrats will not get the 66% or so that they got with Obama in 2008. They will be lucky to get the 56% or so that they got with Kerry in 2004. I will not be surprised if they lose it outright.

      1. Cuccinelli won 18-24 year olds by 8 pts in 2013 VA Gov race, the 18 year olds in 2016 will be more conservative then those who were 18 in 08.

    2. You never know. It’s like Harold MacMillan replies when asked what could bring down his government: “Events, dear boy; events.”

      (Bet he didn’t see that one event coming. Or perhaps he did.)

  4. It’s not just the horrible food. It’s the “you can’t raise money by selling candy bars or having a bake sale.”

    That’s the real kicker for my nephew, anyway.

  5. The “surprisingly” part reminds me of the bit in one of the Hitchhiker’s Guide books, where the sheep are surprised at the sun coming up, surprised at all the green stuff in the fields, etc.
