New Poll Shows GOP Becoming 'Irrelevant' to Young People

A recent Democracy Corps poll finds the Republican party becoming increasingly "irrelevant" to America's young people while President Barack Obama's popularity continues to grow.

Democracy Corps and Greenberg Quinlan Rosner's first post-election survey of youth suggests voters ages 18 to 29 have undergone a striking political evolution in recent years.

By a 59 to 14 percent margin, these voters people prefer the Democrats when it comes to "paying attention to issues that affect younger people," a six point gain since 2007.

Meanwhile, young people's support for President Obama has expanded beyond the 66 percent support they gave him last November.
