Calls -- a couple assess the -- funny for the president.
He should be seriously worried that it is interesting that.
W dot -- the latest -- -- there -- others what do you make of what's gonna.
I think Jon Stewart certainly speaks to -- part of the electorate certainly a youth vote that came out for droves for President Obama and 2008.
Thank -- speaking especially in that statement.
Today's disaffection to this disillusionment with the president that they as you pointed out chanted yes we can for just four years ago.
And -- -- the next big leap whether.
I can't picture Jon Stewart running out say the storm and Mormon is the guy Mitt Romney is a guy that I could be wrong.
Would he change the debate among the president's most loyal friends not necessarily to jump to Mitt Romney.
But to lose the passion to go to the polls at all.
I think that's exactly what we're talking about here I don't think.
Jon Stewart would step is gonna jump up and down and vote for Mitt Romney anytime soon I don't think that's who we -- as an anchor or person.
I think what the president risks in a situation like that is exactly what you describe a lack of enthusiasm from his core group of supporters.
And -- really speaks to that group that young.
Electorate -- a lot of college students basically be under thirty generation that is spend just so much of the last couple years learning their political news from him.
You know I learn a lot of political stuff for abuse here and one of the things do is remind you about is getting your base jazz keep -- happy to the primary season.
We're talking about that because Mitt Romney.
While he was you know stacking up these primary wins he wasn't doing so certainly in a convincing manner and among the past in the core conservative movement.
They weren't wound and the argument was then well they're gonna come back to the fold.
Maybe -- -- great zeal but the alternative is worse available for him.
I don't know if that pans out we'll see but what about on this notion here that that -- in the jazz -- area.
Has more to worry about the Mitt Romney would be.
I think they both have problems with their base at this point.
I think as you described to Mitt Romney has some problems with the conservative base we saw those issues play out to the primary.
But at a recent conservative conference here in Washington DC last week conservatives seem pretty happy overall with the with the GOP nominee or at least the presumptive GOP nominee.
I think the president is a little different he has problems with his base.
But I think recent moves for example his executive order on immigration for -- documented workers.
Who are under eighteen I think that places certain segment of his base I think also his.
And position on gay marriage announcing that also -- a certain section of the space so he's trying to attend to his base will see just how -- the results are in the coming months -- -- thank you very very.
