Old President Obama won 61% of the youth vote in 2012 got it.
That number has dropped all lost -- that only 46%.
Of young people approve of his job performance as of now.
Political prospect the editor that all of is kind of a headache.
She joins us.
61 to 48%.
Why is the president losing support amongst the millennial -- -- sold a bill of goods they were told this would be the most.
Transparent administration ever but -- -- now they were told that we he would bring back the economy would reduce the debt.
None of that's happened the debt skyrocketing there are no jobs sixteen points 1% unemployment among people in my generation that's the highest of any group.
Since world -- that.
Got it so that did to young people really care first and foremost about economic financial issues.
Didn't they vote for President Obama in overwhelming numbers for these social issues they dead.
They did go in there out of the cause class -- -- their parents' basement trying to find a job all of a sudden that realization sets and that they don't have a job.
And this man President Obama promised to get -- that job they care about the social issues but I would argue there's a libertarian bent my generation.
Day care about the socialist -- but they also care about a free market they care about transparency.
We saw how they coalesce around someone like Ron Paul.
There's a libertarian bent and I think we're seeing that come out now now that there are no jobs the jobs that they were -- has the spying issue.
As I've gotten to young people -- absolutely and if you -- -- the turn of the disapproval of Obama came right around the scandals the IRS scandal the NSA scandal.
They they've rallied around -- -- in many people in my generation call him -- -- not me but many people dip but I definitely think that was a definitive turning point and there.
Disapproval of President Obama.
Within a couple of hours we're gonna find out whether senator Harry Reid presses the button on the -- real option damaging the senate rules to make sure that the president's appointee is so over the labor relations board and the consumer financial protection board.
How would -- go down amongst -- young people if he plays the nuclear option.
I think that they will like this change today you brought up -- in the break him.
They they want President Obama they gave him this right to lead and they want -- -- and they want his appointees to be there that being sad.
This reeks of hypocrisy and help my generation -- realize that considering the fact Democrats.
Sports thirty cloture votes when President Bush -- an -- filibuster many of his nominees and all the sudden.
They're screaming about this rule that they themselves -- used in -- -- fast okay.
Elections -- -- 141516.
Months away yes do you think that the Democrats will still hold -- a significant majority of the young people's vote that's an interesting question they Republicans have a very real opportunity here but displeasure with Democrats does not equal.
Pleasure with Republicans so Republicans need to solicit their votes and do it in a likable fast and Mike Kelly McNamee.
Political prospects by accident was in New York today thank you very much the -- My take.
