McCain slowly growing on young voters

← return to Politics 101

National Journal has an interesting piece looking at how John McCain has made some headway among young voters, although his opponent is still far ahead in this voting bloc.

It cites a Reuters/Zogby poll looking at how Barack Obama’s support among 18-to-29-year-olds was 64 percent compared to 26 percent for McCain in early July. However, by mid-August, things shifted a bit, from 52 percent for Obama to 29 percent for McCain.

This gap, of course, is still fairly significant…reminds me of Winston Churchill’s words

“Show me a young Conservative and I’ll show you someone with no heart. Show me an old Liberal and I’ll show you someone with no brains.”
