From Adam Tragone:
In a survey launched by Young America's Foundation and conducted by the polling company, Kellyanne Conway, Inc., more than 60 percent of college-age students feel that government should not take an active role in their day-to-day-lives, and half of respondents believe that the federal government is mostly hurting economic recovery.
President Ronald Reagan said "Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States." And, as the poll suggests, young people share this belief: 66 percent of the students polled had a positive opinion of "entrepreneurship," 44 percent found "free markets" positive, and 42 percent believe the federal government is an opponent rather than a partner in the pursuit of the American Dream.
Given the results of this poll, yo've got to be asking yourself just why in the hell did the majority of college-age students vote for Barack Obama? Katie Pavlch suggests that there were several reasons ... and here are two of them:
1. Barack Obama sold this age demographic a false bill of goods. He used rhetoric that made it seem like conservatives are interested in controlling their lives through government, while he is actually the one who supports policies that require big government intervention (and like gullible sheep ... they fell for it).
2. Conservatives and Republicans aren't explaining or selling freedom in the right way.
