Zogby Poll: Over 40% of youth vote backs RomneyTopics: Police Brutality and Corruption
One of the critical demographics for Barack Obama demonstrates his vulnerability, which is surely one of the reasons why the Democrats have become so ugly right out of the gate. Clearly, Obama can be beaten ... and he knows it (h/t - Dan Riehl).
For the first time since he began running for president, Republican Mitt Romney has the support of over 40 percent of America's youth vote, a troubling sign for President Obama who built his 2008 victory with the overwhelming support of younger, idealistic voters.In other polling, today's Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll of likely voters shows Mitt Romney with 47% voter support nationwide, and President Obama with 43%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided. Romney's lead is a bit larger when leaners are included.
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.
Note that in Rasmussen's surveys of 'likely voters' ... Mitt Romney has led Barack Obama in all but 6 of the daily polls since mid May.
Gallop's Daily Presidential Tracking Poll of registered voters has Mitt Romney at 47% ... Barack Obama at 45%.
