The College Republican National Committee released a report this month on how the GOP can better reach young people. It is a good step forward. I have a piece out on it on the Huffington Post:
From a Republican perspective, there seems to be a disconnect between the impact of Democratic policies on the lives of young people and which political party young people favor. Looking forward, the question is can Republicans make that connection? If so, how?
Many pundits dismiss young voters as a lost cause for Republicans — they presume, for example, that a message supporting the value of limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free enterprise won’t resonate with young voters. The College Republican National Committee isn’t buying into that story line. Instead, the CRNC is taking steps to figure out how Republican candidates can better reach young voters, publishing a report this month,The Grand Old Party for a Brand New Generation, detailing its research and offering suggestions.
