Democrats Don't Have Youth Vote Locked Up

Charlie Cook: "President Obama carried the 18-to-29-year-old voting bloc by 34 points in 2008 and by 23 points last year. But a new national survey of millennial voters conducted by Harvard's Institute of Politics suggests this emerging generation might not be as locked into the Democratic camp as conventional wisdom suggests, and that young voters exhibit some of the same stark partisan divides as older Americans."

Also important: "The poll shows that young voters' trust in their leaders and political institutions is low and dropping."
