"Values Agenda" Alienates Young Voters

President Bush's approval rating among voters aged 18-24 sits at 20%. 53% disapprove and 28% have no opinion. In Bush's defense, his disapproval rating isn't any higher in this group than the overall population, in fact, it's lower. Nevertheless, it's becoming increasingly clear that the GOP's cultural wedge issues are not winning over American youth, especially when it comes to gay marriage. Just like all other cultural issues, from clothing to interracial marriage, history is on the liberal's side.

Young people voiced strong opposition to the president on many issues, especially Iraq.
