    A very large proportion of recent university graduates have soured on President Barack Obama, and many will vote GOP or stay at home in the 2012 election, according to two new surveys of younger voters.

    “These rock-solid Obama constituents are free-agents,” said Kellyanne Conway, president of The Polling Company, based in Washington, D.C. She recently completed a large survey of college grads, and “they’re shopping around, considering their options, [and] a fair number will say at home and sit it out,” she said.

    The scope of this disengagement from Obama is suggested by an informal survey of 500 post-grads by Joe Maddalone, founder of Maddalone Global Strategies. Of his sample, 93 percent are aged between 22 and 28, 67 percent are male and 83 percent voted for Obama in 2008. But only 27 percent are committed to voting for Obama again, and 80 percent said they would consider voting for a Republican, said New York-based Maddalone.

    That’s a drop of almost 60 points in support for Obama among this influential class of younger post-grad voters, who Maddalone recruited at conferences held at New York University and Thomson-Reuters’ New York headquarters.
  2. Recent college grads sour on Obama,

    Obama graduated from college, the way I figure it, he doesn't like himself, so who can blame people who don't even know him for seeing the light.
  3. He made LOTS of promises.. of course, he was LYING OUT HIS ASS WITH EVERY BREATH...

    Let's hope college students are not the only disgruntled group...
  4. Tea Party voters say they will vote for Obama, now that he found and disposed of Bin Laden. :D .
  5. You mean to tell me that Tea Partiers for Obama aren't Taxed Enough Already?
    You lefties are getting desperate, aren't you. [​IMG]
