Democracy Corps Youth Research: Report on the Obama Generation

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

Democracy Corps and Greenberg Quinlan Rosner’s first post-election survey of youth shows the Republican Party growing more and more irrelevant to America’s young people. In marked contrast, young people’s support for the President has expanded beyond the 66 percent support they gave him last November. However, progressives have work to do among these voters—and would be voters—as well, as this survey signals insufficient enthusiasm for participating in the 2010 elections.
