So over it.

Compared to his average approval a month before the election, Obama’s approval rating since the beginning of July has dropped 9.3pt, to 52.3%, among 18- to 29-year-olds. His approval among 30- to 49-year-olds has dipped by 5.7pt, to 45.5%.

His approval among those older than 50 has stayed relatively stable comparatively. He’s only down to 1.5pt among 50- to 64-year-olds, and 2.7pt among those older than 65. Indeed, his approval with 50- to 64-year-olds has actually been 0.2pt higher than among 30- to 49-year-olds.

Pew Research, with a much smaller sample size, also showed that Obama’s approval rating with 18- to 29-year-olds has taken a dive. So, no, you likely can’t just assign this to “Gallup being Gallup”.

Yes it’s still up there but the trend should be enough to give the GOP a little hope. I have never really been one to get the vapors whenever the youth demo breaks for a Democrat-that happens more often than not. What’s important is realizing that there is the possibility that they will morph politically as they get older and do things like have children and pay taxes.

The worry in recent years is that they’ve been indoctrinated past the point of no return. It has probably been more of a caught up in the moment kind of thing with this one political figure.

And the moment seems to be passing.

The election was last year. Obama is president AGAIN. If we get a President Hillary, her numbers will dip dramatically by the end of 2017 too because she will have also lied her way into office, and will proceed to promote ruinous policies. Democrats are finding ways to win national elections, Republicans are not. Having the idiot "people" get pissed off at a scoundrel President in the off years doesn't mean anything anymore.
