GOP nearing brink of generation gap - JSOnline
This is a good treatment of the partisan generation gap, including comment from Wisconsin's Rep. Paul Ryan.
What factors make it difficult for Republicans to appeal to 18-30 year olds?
Does Obama's success with that group mean that a generation has now been permanently won over to the Democratic party or can this change? FYI: Ronald Reagan won the youth vote very strongly. Young voters don't always go to the Dem or liberal side-- historically they go with whichever party is ascendent at the time. Does then mean the current pessimism about Republican chances with the young is overstated?
