54. The youth didn't show up
Less than half the youth that voted in the 2008 election showed up for the last primary election. The loss of those votes alone is enough to account for the drubbing Democrats received during the last primaries. I think a lot of the youth movement that was excited about Obama in 08, became disillusioned with Obama over the last couple of years. People like you and I are political junkies and always show up to vote, but most people are not political junkies.
