Jennifer Rubin: How GOP can win young voters

The GOP’s problem with younger voters is relatively new. Richard Nixon won 52 percent of voters under 30 in 1972. Ronald Reagan won 59 percent of the youth vote in 1984. In 2000, George W. Bush lost under-30 voters by only 2 percentage points. By 2004, however, a study showed that those under 30 were “the only age group to prefer the Democratic ticket over the Republican, albeit by a fairly narrow margin of 54 percent to 45 percent.”
