1. In the past four years, young adults have come of voting age “with views shaped largely by the recession,” reports Susan Saulny in The New York Times

    Today’s 18- to 24-year-olds support Obama over Republican rival Mitt Romney by just 12 percentage points — half his lead among voters aged 25 to 29 — and among white college-age voters Obama and Romney are essentially tied. Probably not coincidentally, the unemployment rate for 18- and 19-year-olds is 23.5 percent, and 12.9 percent for those 20 to 24.

    Will a lousy economy cost Obama the youth vote?
