Hmmm: Number of Young Voters Saying They'll "Definitely" Vote In This Election Plummets

Su Abuela no es buena.

In 2008, 74% said they'd definitely vote. (Note this doesn't mean they did vote, but the first prerequisite to bothering to cast a vote is having a definite intent to vote.)

In 2012, Hope and Change dropped that number to 58%. Thanks, Obama!

But in 2016, in fell even further to 47%.

Note that this demographic despises Trump -- and would produce a lot of votes if they were animated to vote for Su Abuela.

But it seems they're not.

There's more interesting stuff in the link -- there is, in fact, a universe of non-college educated white voters who usually don't vote who could swamp Su Abuela at the polls if they turned out.

And some of these infrequent voters -- likely Trump voters, mostly -- are finally registering to vote.

But most aren't.

Trump's cheapskate/can't be bothered approach to registration and GOTV operations could wind up being his downfall.

Well, there are fifty nine things that could wind up being his downfall. But this seems to be the easiest to fix and thus the most difficult to excuse.
