Brand new Fox News polls though show a different story Mitt Romney -- -- Obama.
They -- a dead -- -- -- for the youth voting eighteen to 29 since young voters typically swing democratic is a bit of a shock.
How do you go how do you explain the gap being closed because during the McCain -- after the election against John McCain.
He had a substantial advantage over John McCain and you're about to see that.
Who better to ask -- the youngest US congressman in office today representative -- shock of Illinois congressman welcome back.
Hey Brian didn't do it yet so it seems as though Mitt Romney -- just getting technically not even getting the nomination yet has closed the youth GAAP.
How does he had to how does he have to keep that the way it is.
Well Brian I young people learned a very valuable lesson last cycle and that is cool is not mean qualified.
And of the young people have learned this more than anyone because the young people of this country had been hit hardest by the Obama economy.
Half of the people who graduated from college last may.
Are still unemployed -- the young people who graduated from college last may have moved back in with their parents.
-- hardly the America that day at home for hardly the reward for their hard work.
And an effort they've put into earning a college education right so what what do I think Brock Mitt Romney needs to do it's very simple he needs to lay out his.
Alternative economic agenda which he's doing.
One that that that creates jobs one that opens up our private sector economy gets the burden of regulation in big government off of the young viewers back.
So that these young people have an opportunity when they get out of school to get a good job well.
-- right now against John McCain -- Obama took substantial.
Two this is scheduled the lion's share of the youth -- 66 to 32.
That's an incredible number so you suggesting even almost college campuses of the bastion of liberal thought.
They -- Mitt Romney should focus ongoing from campus to campus doing forum type of events.
Why not look the polls show young people are open young people are looking for change.
Young people are looking for an alternative I can speak from experience having -- in my hometown of Peoria.
We went to Bradley university's campus we had over a thousand young people show up.
With just two days notice and they were there eager to hear what Mitt Romney had to say he was well received.
And young people are out of work they're looking for an alternative and the fundamental question is very simple and are you better off today than you were four years ago.
You feel you have a better opportunity today to get a better job when you graduate from college.
And the answer for young people as an unequivocal no but there is that never and the president's approach is being student loans make it more and it gives -- -- -- More handouts more giveaways -- mean -- it's not just Solyndra and this here and his politically connected friends and get handouts if he can -- a group.
Like young people and say hey listen.
What will give you no longer to -- we'll give you lower interest rate -- young people don't want more debt.
Young people don't want.
A better loan.
They want to -- a way to pay off the loan they want a way to pay off the debt and the best way to do that.
Is to get him the job I actually would like to see some of these institutions tell us what they're spending it on a -- cost 52000 dollars a year to go there.
But listen congressman shock that's a whole other issue but -- might be an approach for a politician thanks so much for joining us today.
