    These mush heads aren't matured enough to vote.

    According to that video clip, it doesn't look like very many young voters intend to vote.....and, that is a good thing.

    They'll never vote in large numbers unless they can do it from their phones.

    Well, if they are targeting college students in a specific district they are barking up the wrong tree. College kids vote in their home districts not in the district they are studying in.

    No its not a good thing. they are part of society and the future of this country. they should be more informed and allowed to think freely. they should be allow to see what this country truly is what how it was built and how to preserve and improve.

    OK, I see your point, and agree with it......however, as long as they are being indoctrinated into believing what isn't true.......it's still a good thing they aren't voting.

    I work for a university in Maine,students here are considered residents and can vote in local elections. The dems push hard to get out the vote here.

    I always wonder if it is laziness or apathy that has these young clowns all revved up about "issues" but then they don't bother to vote. Hearing a minority kid probably getting special treatment saying he hopes there are enough of "his people" to flip the district irritates the hell outta me! :steamed: Hey, Pablo, you're in OUR country sucking off of OUR welfare teat but you wanna change the system because why ...? A-hole, go back home and flip a few Mexican districts. Especially one full of MS13.

    After that humiliation back in 2016, they're just not going to stick their entitled little necks out for years to come. So many here are afraid of losing the mid-terms..................... but I'm here to tell you the republicans will sweep! Keep yer chin up, and wipe that loser look off yer mug!!

    Thankfully, I was. As a young fellow I suffered the disdain of my own father and my small home town for rejecting the Democrat Party. Dad was a lifelong Union and Democrat voter and I suppose his greatest disappointment in me was rejecting it. In his defense, the Democrat Party he wanted to believe still existed was the one that put lifesaving regulations in during the industrial revolution and the aid given during the Great Depression. Before he died, he told me that there was just no way he could vote for Obama and he didn’t.

    My home town is a large "small" town that has a college in it. The college has grown, till now the student voters run the town. It is a form of play for them to vote stuff in just to see if they can do it, and they agree with this.

    Don't discount college voters. They have no skin in the game and don't care what the taxes are or where they are going. It's only an amusing diversion to them.

    I'll take it a step further and say don't discount high school voters. A few years ago, we had a hefty tax increase on the ballot in our town. The election was a special election, in May. A lot of seniors turned 18 by that time. The school had a huge campaign to register and vote for the tax levy. It passed by a narrow margin. These kids have moved on to college or moved to other cities to work. I'm stuck here paying about $1000 more a year in property taxes. Talk about having no skin in the game!
