Something big is happening.
And it has to do with the youth vote -- voters between 18 and 29 years of age.
Be sure of this: The implications could be major.
Here's what's up: For the first time since he began running for
president, Republican Mitt Romney has the support of over 40 percent of
America's youth vote. This is a troubling sign for President Obama who many feel built his
2008 victory with the heavy support of younger voters.
John Zogby of of the polling firm of JZ Analytics reports that Romney received 41 percent in his weekend poll of
1,117 likely voters, for the first time crossing the 40 percent mark.
But, get this: Romney is the only Republican of those who
competed in the primaries to score so high among 18-29 year olds.
"This is the first time I am seeing Romney's
numbers this high among 18-29 year olds," says Zogby. "This could be
trouble for Obama who needs every young voter he can get."
