Less than half of voters under 30 will definitely vote? More proof of Obama's miserable failure. No surprise there.

WAKE UP young people!! The stakes have never been higher in my lifetime!! I was 18 in 1973 and have NEVER seen such a clear choice between presidential candidates in my voting lifetime!! I've never missed a vote, either. Every Vote counts to stave off the regressive hatred of the rightwingnutjobs! Vote Obama/Biden, and vote for Democrats down the line. Your life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness DOES depend on it!!

The Democrat inspired education in America has hit rock bottom. Youth have been encouraged to be rigid and reject any pluralism whatsoever. This is all due to Communist subversive activities since the 1960s. Most youth refuse to discuss anything; they emotionally believe they were born with intelligence beyond that of their forefathers. An opinionated, stagnant intellectualism taught in our colleges is contrary to every gain in civilized culture to the present moment.

Vote are your jokeing and leave thier vedio games and in all that nasty weather . Besides its been done voteing is so 2008 they will leave that booring stuff to thier parents the ones that work and pay taxs those stiff stuggie republican types that live in the suburbs and drive suvs that run on five bucks a gallon gas

Although I have been shocked at the numbers of 18 to 25 year olds rebelling against the system .

Buy system I mean the 60 s radical hippys that now run academics and the goverment

You see these young rebels dressed nicely carry copys of atlas shurgged and sporting Ron Paul bumper stickers on thier hondas and volvos what is the world coming too
