Why Many Young People Love Ron Paul And Why Many Older People Despise HimSubmitted by Nick Sorrentino on Thu, 05/03/2012 - 22:50
I have watched Ron Paul for a very long time and one trend I see over and over is the split that emerges between people of roughly under the age of 40 and those who are older when his name is mentioned. I have no polling data to back this up, but young people seem to like Ron Paul and older people seem not to.
This is by no means uniform. I know plenty of older folks who love the good doctor and plenty of young people who do not like him, but generally the above statement holds I think. Why is this?
Fundamentally I believe it comes down to faith in the markets and whether or not one is playing for the future, or if one is clinging to the past.
