Enthusiasm among the youth of America for the Democratic Party is vanishing almost as quickly as their MySpace accounts in the age of Facebook:
It appears there is a potentially huge problem for Democrats going into the 2010 election cycle: young people simply are not voting. Part of Martha Coakley’s problem in Massachusetts was the incredibly low turnout among voters between 18-29….
Young people tend to favor the Democratic party. If the party is unable to increase youth turnout in 2010, it could turn out a very bad year for the Democratic party.
No one could have seen this coming.
