Despite already raising $86 million in campaign funds, President Barack Obama faces the prospect of a more fiscally mature youth — the same constituency that placed the president in the Oval Office by a margin of 2-to-1, and with 3 million more voters than in 2004, according to the National Review.
Given the current economic doldrums, young, “Millennial” voters — those 18- to 29-years of age — are finding the prospects for jobs practically nonexistent, and have lost their faith in Obama, the National Review writes.
Republicans can monopolize on the new found opportunity and can ramp up their efforts to appeal to those Millennials forced to delay buying their first home or waiting to start a family as a result of the new economic reality, it says.
With “Generation Opportunity” feeling dismal about the state of the economy, real-life choices and the need to earn a living have matured the once idealistic constituency into realists concerned for their own economic well-being — and not just social justice, the Review writes.
