As -- -- a seventeen.
Point decline in his approval rating among young voters in just one month it was last month is the -- phone.
That's -- to young voters joining the company's Jason the terror he's the author of Obama zombie is.
And Charlie cut from a turning point USA Jason -- you for -- The president has dropped seventeen points in approval.
Does that extend to the Democrats the party as a whole in the year 2014.
And the elections well there's usually a drop off.
In mid term elections anyway.
For younger -- so I think Democrats will be hates because of a lack of of voter turnout that they had in 2012 from younger voters.
But I don't think it's gonna have much to do with the current controversy that -- may have been a slight bit to do but I do think Democrats could be hurt.
And we have two significant reasons why there's been a seventeen point drop off in this one poll number one -- you have obamacare starting to kick in.
And you have young people who used to buy these bare bones insurance policies just would then notify them get something catastrophic happening.
On now they're forced to have -- hold this you know panoply.
Of of different.
You know it's enough coverage that they would not having their premiums are going up it sometimes double triple in the second thing which is probably more significant is the NSA controversy.
Who are the biggest consumers.
Smartphone and really electronic communication it's it's young people who grew up with this and you have two thirds of them in that same poll that believed the government.
Is monitor being -- electronic communication so it's not -- things and husband that I believe the government honoring Charlie Cook come into this -- -- youngster.
That you want nineteen years old is not right -- you twenty yet.
That's right nineteen and I think I -- makes a great point that during midterm elections we see that you know young voter turnout.
Goes down but I don't necessarily think this will translate for Republican victory.
There's unfortunately a lot of Republican leadership such as Lindsey Graham John McCain.
They're not denouncing this behavior I mean John McCain went on -- and said.
He dismissed any notion that you know privacy is being violated he was not speaking the message of constitutional liberty.
Or something that more of a Dennis Kucinich type or Rand Paul -- And what the Republicans and Democrats on both mainstream chasing the B -- have a bipartisan consensus that this kind of snooping and privacy violation.
And as long as leaders -- former presidential nominees such as John McCain doesn't denounce this kind of behavior body and I say well it's not gonna -- -- Going to do what your editorial very much and talk -- -- touch with youngsters I know -- law are they talking about the invasion of privacy did they really object to the idea.
I think Jason told us that two thirds of them believe that they all being snooped on.
He did did they care about this this is a big deal to him.
This -- a huge issue and I and I'll use a -- able term imagine thirty years ago and a government agent went to a -- -- and rifled through all the short -- of a teenager.
It be considered demonstrable that's exactly the same -- my generation looks -- Internet snooping and up privacy violation it's the exact same way.
Because we live on the Internet we were born -- we communicate.
And we it.
Have all of our friends I mean I know people on Saturday nights they'd rather be on the Internet and go out with friends so look at the kind of living space -- the way that we look at the Internet my generation does -- with Jason.
And different than thirty years ago and I think that.
When the government goes into our living space it's a direct violation of our liberty and privacy it seems to me that the winning political grouping Kia -- the -- -- it's better ones who object to this lack of privacy.
That the ones who want to legalize marijuana I think the -- -- winning here.
You wouldn't think.
Well you -- have a natural base.
Libertarians with with with young people.
Who may want the government to get out but here is where I think it doesn't make sense them for -- -- to support Barack Obama because.
If you know they talk about an invasion intrusion of privacy if -- just -- snooping.
It's you know top down from redistribution of wealth to obamacare to even the environment but that's -- -- that's not resonating with -- it's it's not and that's -- -- -- Republican Party that's -- the Republican -- now it's it's -- certainly -- jobs because the unemployment -- Is is is pretty much -- same as it was for young people as it was during the election so it's not that.
Republicans do have an opportunity.
To go ahead and entry in and take that are ready inmates.
Distrust for government snooping on you.
I and take that characteristic an army and then -- into others say it's other other factions that.
Would not harm young people like health care and I think there is an opportunity for someone like ramp -- Who can harness the energy that his father had amongst young people -- take it into the 2016 plus what.
You -- -- -- Charlie it seems to me that social issues still dominate with young voters right.
Yeah absolutely I mean you look at the last election I think it was framed in a social issue.
-- -- -- Narrative and unfortunately young people be -- and very very socially liberal my high school -- 88% of the graduating class supported.
Marriage equality if you look at the younger generation becoming more socially liberal but they also like I'll go back to this point.
They really treat privacy very very seriously and this is an opportunity.
For the GOP -- the conservative movement if they capitalize.
On this distrust of government that seems to parallel a lot of the other economic freedom issues you know we don't want to.
A government telling us what to buy what not to -- I think it's an opportunity time.
We take it thanks so much Charlie Cook just Mattel are both of you thank you very much indeed to.
