And the last Gallup tracking poll voters aged 29 and younger support President Obama by a nineteen point margin -- -- Mitt Romney.
Joining us now is Jason but Tara all all Obama zombies.
Why such a huge continuing -- tell -- Well I think many factors play into -- but this is actually tactically very good for Romney because.
Obama -- lead amongst young voters just four years ago was double that nineteen point margin so.
Even though it's gonna be a substantial number of young people who going festival for Barack Obama.
It's not gonna be nearly the -- now if these if the polling is correct.
As -- was four years ago and younger voters were an indispensable part of his winning coalition.
And I think it's gonna help seal the deal for Mitt Romney in many of these -- -- swing states that.
Now that's it let me reverse the question I asked you know why -- -- big gap.
But the -- question really is why has the gap shrunk so much from four years ago explain that yes.
Well there's just not the same enthusiasm.
And that's because you have an underemployment rate of amongst eighteen to 29 year old -- nearly 16%.
Once they graduate college it's very hard for them to fine job we still have tuition prices.
That -- weren't so all these factors are coming together and they can look at the track record of Barack Obama and it's not very good they can't.
They understand -- an economic Malays.
And therefore the less enthusiastic about going in casting the vote.
For hope and change and such and -- -- because now there's there's a record.
You know it's still it's mind boggling that you still gonna have.
A good one need to -- -- 15%.
-- margin of victory for Barack Obama amongst younger voters but they haven't thought about it Obama zombies.
Ignorance doesn't have to make sense most of the time -- -- blind allegiance I just I do think moving forward the Republican Party need to take a page out of the Obama playbook.
Needs to establish bases on college campuses needs to turn their events into entertainment.
Style stops like Barack Obama does.
And needs to make conservative ideas more palatable to younger voters talk about how capitalism.

Each and every life.
Jason -- don't want second I just want to ask our company members here why it is okay that the gap.
Has narrowed but still nineteen points in favor President Obama amongst young people why -- young people go for this president so strongly stale state.
I think it's because they still don't understand real free markets again and I think -- Romney's got to do a better job fact everyone in the next four years when I wrote a book about it freedom manifesto like free markets are immoral and big government isn't.
People don't understand the basis of the system how profoundly important it is.
They're also not taught any more about checks and balances I don't mean money.
But about the origins of this government limited government free they're not taught us about what I mean free markets and the constitutional never talked about -- never -- in terms of liberty.
And freedom and under a -- coalition and they get a little -- ability to innovate and say got to connect the dots you wanna be able choose your own doctor you need the freedom to do what.
Not you don't want the post office that's right and it's not just individual liberty that's not big cut -- economic freedom that's not being taught.
Look most young -- to not be idealist -- not told and they tend to be idealistic because generally they haven't held chopper paid taxes yet.
Soon -- they get out into the real world they tend to get work and they don't and they don't realize that artistry is in the market.
Place what -- what jobs did with apple.
Genesis commerce -- -- cute just before we close on this one what will be -- time now amongst young people compact at 08 fast.

Much less than that this time around.
