A staggering 51% of those who graduated from college since 2006 don't have a full-time job
Ironically, these are the same voters who mobbed the polls for Obama in 2008, giving him a significant part of his winning margin. A whopping 66% of voters under 30 gave Obama their votes in 2008, making the disparity between young voters and other age groups larger than in any presidential election since exit polling began in 1972. But now, four years older, many of them have entered their 30s, and a full 50% say that Obama has failed to change the way Washington works. The under-40 generations who were sold on Obama's brand of hope now face a frightening future by just about every economic measure. Many live according to a month-to-month mentality, afraid to make even the smallest economic commitment, because they fear losing a job, or never finding one. Will they be foolish enough to vote for Obama again in November 2012?
