The 20-something Vote: Up For Grabs?

The N.Y. Times is reporting that fewer young voters see themselves as Democrats.

This is a quite surprising development in such a short period of time. Obama seemed to fill the 18-29 year olds with energy and commitment. Alas, it seems to be dissipating:

Kristin Johnson, 23, like many other students interviewed here in recent days, said that a vote for Democrats in 2008, however passionate it was, did not a Democrat make. But she bristles just as much at the idea of being called a Republican.

“It’s like picking a team when you really don’t want to root for either team,” said Ms. Johnson[.]

I’m sure I’m not the only libertarian who hopes that those disillusioned with both sides will give our team a look.
