If you are younger than about 35 (and certainly younger than 30) then Rush is likely to have little influence on you.

Young people very rarely listen to the radio anymore. Particularly not AM radio.

They live, sleep, breathe online on things like Twitter (where Obama was able to effectively target them with one-on-one messages that “your personal favorite pet stupid issue will be my #1 priority”)

People under 30 are even ambivalent as to whether we should continue living under capitalism or not. On traditional marriage. On just about everything.

Mitt Romney does have presence on Twitter but for some reason didn’t use it as much as Team Obama.

Yep. They’re mostly tuned into their tunes and texts. Queer is fine. Politics is for old people. Socialism...whatever. Give Obama a chance, he’s cool. We’re all gonna get destroyed somehow anyway (from all the doom & gloom TV pieces).

I think many of the yung’uns will get it. Most of the ones I know do, at leastm ost of them say, “too many people think the world and society owes them everything.” As to things like same sex marriage, well, perhaps not as strong, but if they figure things out where we are all entitled to be left alone as long as we don’t harm others and we keep our stuff we work for, I would consider that a win.
