President Obama took the lion’s share of the youth vote in the 2008 election, but does the addition of Paul Ryan to the GOP ticket give Republicans at a chance at taking enough of this demographic to help win this November?
FOX’s Doug McKelway reports from Washington in this Election Update:
From America’s Election Headquarters…
The presence of 42-year-old Paul Ryan on the GOP ticket may be helping to slow a huge demographic advantage that President Obama enjoyed in 2008: the support of young voters. Four years ago, exit polls showed that the 18-to-29 demographic voted for Obama over McCain by a 66%-32% margin. A FOX News poll from August 5th of this year showed a loss of 10 percentage points in support from Obama’s heady days of 2008 – and that was a week before Ryan joined the GOP ticket.
