Obama and college graduates

A recent informal survey of 500 post-grads primarily between the ages of 22 and 28 — 83% of whom voted for President Barack Obama in 2008 — found that just 27% of Obama’s previous youth supporters plan to vote for him again. 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% — said that they would vote GOP again. An 80% majority of those newly disillusioned by Obama said that they would consider voting for a Republican in 2012, too.
