Despite the ruin liberals have made of the education establishment, young people are still learning some valuable lessons:
A recent informal survey of 500 post-grads primarily between the ages of 22 and 28 — 83 percent of whom voted for President Barack Obama in 2008 — found just 27 percent of Obama's previous youth supporters plan to vote for him again, The Daily Caller reports. That's a drop of almost 60 points.
In contrast, of those who voted for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in 2008, a vast majority — 80 percent — said they would vote GOP again. An 80 percent majority of those newly disillusioned by Obama said they would consider voting for a Republican in 2012, too.
Why the change? Probably that first paycheck — or the lack thereof.
When parent-financed playtime ends, the grim reality of Obamanomics hits home. The gooey warm feeling some got from voting for the left-wing black guy with no qualifications isn't going to pay the rent.
