  • Top 10 Ways Obama Can Boost His Popularity with Younger Voters

    Top 10 Ways Obama Can Boost His Popularity with Younger Voters

    On Wednesday night, David Letterman gave viewers the "Top 10 Ways Obama Can Boost His Popularity with Younger Voters," on "The Late Show." President Barack Obama's been courting youth all week. He's visited the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisc., shared his iPod playlist with "Rolling Stone," and called for education reforms such as a longer school year. Really? Shortening the Summer vacation is going to win over the youth vote? Obama apparently not only needs to energize the Democratic party as a whole, he's got to reconnect and ignite the young Democrats that helped get him elected in 2008. A recent ABC/Washington Post Poll found that only 55 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds say they are “absolutely certain” to go to the polls this year, as opposed to 78 percent of 50- to 64-year-olds and 77 percent of those over age 65. Enter Letterman. His satirical adjustments, include changing Obama's name to Bajustin Obieber, might be more of a crowd pleaser than a "Yes we can" chant. We think the Justin Bieber crowd may be a bit too young to vote. But you decide. Check out our photo illustrations of Letterman's recommendations for connecting with young voters.
