    A majority of 18-to-24-year-olds now say they would recall Obama as president if they could. It is finally happening; young people who overwhelmingly supported Obama are now turning away from him in droves. The hope and change he promised never materialized, instead replaced with deteriorating conditions.

    A new poll from Harvard University’s Institute of Politics found that Millennial approval of Obama has dipped to the lowest ever, at 41 percent. Their dissatisfaction with Obama now mirrors the rest of the country. Similarly, 56 percent of Americans aged 18 to 29 disapprove of Obamacare, compared to only 39 percent who support it. The younger Millennials are becoming increasingly less Democratic. Of those age 18 to 24, 31 percent identify as Democrats and 25 percent as Republicans.

    This is occurring in part because the entry level jobs they are qualified for are drying up and turning into free internships. Paid internships are becoming a rarity. Millennials are realizing the Occupy Wall Street movement’s demands only succeeded in making things worse for them. Fast food workers striking for higher wages is hurting, not helping them. Instead of having a good shot at what used to be plentiful fast-food jobs, young people are finding themselves replaced by fast-food ordering kiosks.

    WHy does it always take a money issue to affect voters. If you tell the average voter a candidate is for or against moral issues they yawn, however if you make any chages to how much their paycheck will be, they will listen to you.

    Millennials thought that they could get something for nothing from Obama, which is what he promised them. When it became obvious that millennials had been swindled by the Democrats, they started clamoring for something else that is impossible, or something for nothing--the removal of their champion. They are an empty-headed generation because it took them six years to figure out that they had been sold a pig in a poke.

    Socialism is just great until it costs money. Then no one wants it.
