Young people stayed home-the reason Paul lost on Super TuesdaySubmitted by texan4paul2012 on Thu, 03/08/2012 - 00:00
There is an article on US News I thought was very insightful in explaining why Ron Paul lost in Super Tuesday. In a nutshell, young people gave up on Ron Paul, and sat on their butt at home on Super Tuesday. In earlier states, young people are more energized, after a string of no win, young people gave up on Ron Paul.
"A study released Wednesday shows in five Super Tuesday states, Ron Paul attracted no more of the youth support than Rick Santorum or Mitt Romney."
We have no one but ourselves to blame. A lot of people are right unfortunately that young people show up on rallies but simply did not go to vote. On the other hand, Romney's and Santorum's old supporters went and casted their votes. Are they right that young people are unreliable?
Ron Paul lost because his young supporters that Ron Paul fought so hard for failed him. Shame.
