Well Well Well my ATS Brothers and Sisters, It looks like The Gen Y Crowd are getting a little bit fed up with all The Political Nonsense out Of
Washington DC (District of Corruption) How Very Surprising! So, I guess it's not just us Old Pharts who've has a Belly Full of all The Malarky
going on in That Human Circus known as our Seat of Government.
I can't say I Blame The Little Guys, I for one have had more than my share of The Deceit, Manipulation and Downright Murder at The We;; Anointed
Hands of our Betters.
So what do you Guys and Gals think? Are The Millennia's entitled to be upset with who and what they voted for, or should they all just shut up and
take it like the rest of us have for so long?
Mods, if this is in the wrong place please feel to move at your discretion. I have done a search here on ATS and there doesn't seem to be anything
about this article anywhere, if I missed it somehow, then just delete the thread.
Thanks Ya'll, wether you're A Sinner or A Saint, your reply is valued.
Peace and Goodnight
In a sad reflection of the hope-and-change expectations, a new national poll shows likely voters in the so-called millennial generation prefer a
Republican-led Congress after next week's elections, and young Hispanics are turning sharply against President Obama. As National Journal reports,
the poll of 18-to-29-year-olds by Harvard's Institute of Politics (IOP) shows that young Americans are leaving the new Democratic coalition that
twice elected Obama as the president's approval rating among Millennial tumbles from 47% in April to just 43% now (and nearly 60% of young Americans
disapprove of Obamacare). However, the news is not all good as the future of the American electorate, generally hold Republicans in the lowest
As The National Journal reports,
A new national poll of 18-to-29-year-olds by Harvard's Institute of Politics shows that young Americans are leaving the new Democratic coalition that
twice elected Obama. The news is little better for the GOP: These voters, who more than any other voting bloc represent the future of the American
electorate, generally hold Republicans in the lowest regard.
The long-view IOP findings suggest that neither party is poised to win the largest generation in U.S. history - a pragmatic, demanding, relatively
nonideological electorate raised in an age of terrorism, war, and government dysfunction.
"Millennials could be a critical swing vote," said IOP Director Maggie Williams, projecting the latest results on future elections. "Candidates for
office: Ignore millennial voters are your peril." Williams is a Democrat and a former adviser to Hillary Clinton.
In the short term, the news is worse for Democrats than Republicans.
Millennials who told the IOP they will "definitely be voting" Tuesday favored Republicans over Democrats, 51 percent to 47 percent. That is a
reversal of September 2010 results, when the IOP found Democrats favored over Republicans among young likely voters, 55 percent to 43 percent.
Obama's job-approval rating among millennials decreased from 47 percent in April to 43 percent, his second-lowest rating in the IOP surveys. Among
young Americans most likely to vote, his job-approval rating is just 42 percent.
Obama's job approval is below 40 percent on several issues, including the economy, health care, the federal budget deficit, and foreign policy.
Nearly six of 10 young Americans disapprove of Obamacare.
Among the one in four millennial voters who say they definitely will vote Tuesday, Republican-leaning constituencies are significantly more
enthusiastic about the election than Democrats.
Just 49 percent of young Hispanics approve of Obama's job performance, the lowest since IOP began tracking in 2009. That's a big drop from six
months ago, when his rating among young Hispanics was 60 percent, and five years ago, when 81 percent of Hispanic millennials approved of Obama's
performance. Only 17 percent of Hispanic youth plan to vote Tuesday, far smaller than the non-Hispanic percentages and likely a reflection of
frustration over stalled immigration reform.

With a week to go... things do not look good for The Democrats... time to get long 'veto' pens.

And if you're wondering why the disillusionment... here's one big reason (via The Washington Times)
The Affordable Care Act was supposed to make health care more affordable, but a study of insurance policies before and after Obamacare shows that
average premiums have skyrocketed, for some groups by as much as 78 percent.
Average insurance premiums in the sought-after 23-year-old demographic rose most dramatically, with men in that age group seeing an average 78.2
percent price increase before factoring in government subsidies, and women having their premiums rise 44.9 percent, according to a report by
HealthPocket scheduled for release Wednesday.
