Why can’t they be like we were, perfect in every way?

Actually, as Bush-era “brand damage” fades amid the grim reality of Obama-ism — hey,  the economy sucks, right? — the kids are starting to figure this stuff out. In 2008, exit polls showed the Republicans lost the under-30 vote by more than a 2-to-1 margin (66%-32%), but as Ed Driscoll says, it’s not 2008 anymore. Obama has clearly lost support among under-30 voters:

Pollster John Zogby of JZ Analytics told Secrets Tuesday that Romney received 41 percent in his weekend poll of 1,117 likely voters, for the first time crossing the 40 percent mark. . . .
“This is the first time I am seeing Romney’s numbers this high among 18-29 year olds,” said Zogby. “This could be trouble for Obama who needs every young voter he can get.”
