I don't think it's any surprise that college kids tend to vote dem. whether they stay dem or not is a different story. Everybody had that friend who went off to college and turned into a hippie overnight. It's weird. But I'm one of those 19% from MS who voted red.... Not bc college effected me but bc I'm a financially responsible person and I want my country to be too.

It's amazing that they are so stupid at the polls since they are so "educated". Then again, you can't win elections against Santa.

What if the reason educated people vote Democrat is because it's actually the smart way to vote, and it takes a smart person to realize this?

I don't necessarily believe this... but my point is that you can't make much of anything with this statistic.

Mitt Romney was a terrible candidate running a crap campaign. They couldn't buy the churchy faith that Romney was selling his base. Step outside that ring and look at him again. Those are not misled college kids. Those are educated people that think more analytically, mathematically, critically than people who have faith in "core values" and "principal" and accepted Romney at face value.

Just more butt hurt repubs. MITT ROMNEY WAS GARBAGE FOR A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE. Plus his campaign alienated too many voters. Think about how much money they threw at the problem and still lost. It's the same thing they would have done with this country. They are out of touch with Americans and it cost the election. How are you going to toe that hard line, not divulge more of your ideas to fix the problem and still expect to win?

In my younger days I was much more liberal, then I got older, took on responsibility, and pretty quickly became conservative in my beliefs. I've always been fiscally conservative, but social issues I'm more of a moderate on. Pro choice, but hardline on immigration. More of a case by case basis.

Very true...from 18-29, we tend to live more "liberal" lives...around 30 most folks tend to settle down, have families and become much more conservative in our thinking.

BS...even Chris "I get a tingle up my leg every time Obama speaks" Matthews admitted that had the election been held 8 days sooner, Romney wins. Just bad luck for Romney...Hurricane Sandy one week before the election...stopped Williard's momentum...and Barry used it as a photo-op...did hundreds of Red Cross commercials..especially in swing states (I must have seen a 100 of them over that week).

Not flawed logic at all. Most christians require their children to go to church, the child never has an option.

True...my father is one of those parents...as am I...but we're not talking about children. We're talking about adults...and adults can decide whether or not to go to church...it doesn't affect them financially. Education is required.

I don't think you know what "indoctrination" means.

Oh...I know what it means...I just felt like bloviating...quick example, my buddy Brett had parents that were religious...as long as he lived under their roof...he had to attend church. However, when he left for college, he quit going...he became an electrical engineer and credits his sociology professor for his current liberal political views...he's becoming more conservative in his thinking, however...having two sets of twin girls will do that to ya. :)

So kids shouldn't be forced to go to school right?

They tend to vote dem until they either 1)cant find a job because the dems taxes are keeping job creation down or 2)they get a good paying job and realize how bad democratic taxes are.

There is a good majority of these younger people who havent worked in the economy where democratic taxes are taken.

The two parts of what is more commonly known as "The Bush Tax Cuts" were set in 2001 and 2003. I only had a parttime job mowing yards when the first was passed in 2001. If these Bush tax cuts end, it will be a rude awakening for a lot of people who voted for Obama. They see that he wants to raise the taxes on the top 1%, little do they know, it will get raised on them as well.

It's amazing that they are so stupid at the polls since they are so "educated". Then again, you can't win elections against Santa.

Obama was giving away free stuff, Romeny wanted to give you a job to work for your stuff. It seems really simple why Obama won when you look at it that way. It will be hard to beat Santa in an election.

      Empire. He is in multiple genres of making money. He has reached the point were he can lease his name to project and make it a solid investment. He isn't just a real estate mogul.    And do I think he cares about me? No. Nor should he. Our republic isn't about what the government can do for me or you. Remember JFKs ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country speech? I do. Too many people want the government to take care of them and make everything equal. Well life isn't like that. We have a disparate level effort being put in and should rightly expect disparity in results. Those that want the false equality of the race to the bottom should look to state and local handouts and leave the federal government out of it.

      Trump also hasn't left a state or campaign in horrible debt....so there's that.

      While investing his money may be a myth, he still underperformed the markets/ his peers by vast margins. Here's a little something from Forbes: http://www.forbes.com/sites/forbesleadershipforum/2016/03/03/has-donald-trump-underperformed-in-the-real-estate-business/#40d464085506

      Multiply it into an empire? That's exaggerating a bit. He grossly under-performed the market over the course of his businesses, left a wake of unpaid workers, lawsuits, and bankruptcies behind him, and still claims to be a "winner" and the best at everything. There's people with a lot more money that him that didn't leave that kind of middle class destruction behind. Call me crazy, but I don't see someone who's lived his entire life in the 1% and is so out of touch with the way people not as fortunate as him lives is suddenly going to be a champion of the middle class. He's lived his entire life in the upper class, s**tting on his middle class workers. What makes YOU think that he's suddenly going to care about you? Trump's run for presidency is all about him and his ego. That's all he talked about on Monday. I didn't hear enough "we" or "America" except when he said he wanted to make it great again. It was all "I have endorsements from.." or "I have property there.." or "I wanted to say something bad about Hillary but didn't and she's a big meany weeny and I think her campaign commercials are mean". There's nothing of substance in almost ANYTHING he says. It's all just babbling about himself and how he's going to fix America without actually giving a plan as to HOW.
