Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on young peoples human rights and the politics of voting age Paper must be at least 1250 words. Please, no plagiarized work! In substance, these numbers could easily change results when taken collectively.
We only have to take a look at the current reelection of Pres. Barack Obama to make a point. The turnout of the young demographic proves d to be the decisive factor which led to Obama securing another four years in the oval office. The young voters made up of a larger number of the electorate compared to his first election. The 18-29 years old demographic was the largest percentage of voters at 19% which was up by a percentage from 2008. Obama was able to get 60% of these votes while Mitt Romney only got 36%. Despite a fall from Obama’s 66% share in the 2008 election, this 60% still made the difference in his marginal win against the Republican. This makes Obama the highest Democratic presidential candidate to get the most votes from the 18-29 age group. A staggering number compared to John Kerry’s 9% in his 2004 presidential bid against reelectionist Pres. George W. Bush (Kingkade, n.p.).
The ostensible support of young voters for Obama confirmed by the numbers led to the conclusion shared by a number of people that this win, much like the first, can be credited to them. Elizabeth Flock’s U.S. News article “Preliminary Tallies: Without Youth Vote, Obama Would Have Lost Election” confirms how the incumbent president’s appeal to young people made him an infallible opponent. This sentiment of likability is not shared by Romney who loses grasp to appeal to youth voters. The young voters in the key states of Florida, Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania were all for Obama. Ohio and Florida which houses the University of Central Florida and the Ohio State University, two of large colleges only mean the big number of young voters (n.p.). The vitality of the president and his affable nature makes him emphatic to the younger generation.
