Bad news for Romney/Kudlow ’08
More than half of Americans ages 17 to 29 â€” 54 percent â€” say they intend to vote for a Democrat for president in 2008. They share with the public at large a negative view of President Bush, who has a 28 percent approval rating with this group, and of the Republican Party. They hold a markedly more positive view of Democrats than they do of Republicans.
In one potential sign of shifting attitudes, respondents, by overwhelming margins, said they believed that the nation was prepared to elect as president a woman, a black person or someone who admitted to having used marijuana. But they said that they did not believe Americans would elect someone who had used cocaine or someone who was a Mormon.
Actually Americans have been surprisingly accepting of candidates who toot. Not that it has panned out all that well…
Live and learn.
