How excited are young voters? Compare the Romney audience & the Obama audience at two colleges

How excited are young voters? Compare the Romney audience & the Obama audience at two colleges
Posted on April 28, 2012

Romney gave a speech at Otterbein University in Ohio today, and the crowd was…less than enthralled. It did however provide a stark contrast to President Obama’s recent college appearances, including one just yesterday at the University of Iowa. Compare the two events below:

1. Ho hum. I just wanna get my check and get outta here.

Not suggesting that Rmoney pays people to attend his campaign appearances.

I would love a photoshopped pic of Rmoney speaking with the entire audience dozing away. Or a cartoon?

3. I voted for JFK the first time and have voted every time since. I do not vote because I am excited

or enthusiastic. I vote to protect a way of life that sustains me. As to feelings - I was excited about JFK, love George McGovern, glad to see Bill Clinton and hopeful with Obama. If the newscasters think I will stay home and not vote for Obama this time they are losing it.

4. Similar photos could be compared at any two places

where the two speak. Smiles and alertness at one, boredom and inattention at the other. Nice photos! They really do show the difference between the candidates well.

5. Not surprising. College students are pretty heavily Democratic

 

Their votes are vital to any Democratic candidate, particularly somebody like Obama, who did a good job of getting young voters to the polls last time around.

A college campus definitely is not Mitt country.

I don't think Mitt should be worried he doesn't energize a key Obama constituency. No Republican could do that. What he should be worried about is that he can't even energize his own base.

6. I noticed the same thing

watching the two events. Wherever Romney speaks, the audience behind him looks like they are in pain. It hardly looks like they are there voluntarily.

11. Great picture. Not one single person is smiling in Romney's audience...not even Romney.

Romney must have felt so down and worried talking to that bunch of dull uninterested faces which looked like they were attending a long boring classroom lecture...not an exciting campaign event with their future president. Every single person is smiling in Obama's pictures...even Obama!
What a contrast!

12. Ok either the photographers and editors also chose wrong photos

 

or look at the candidates.

Romney is grimacing in the first photo, almost get me out of here... Obama is smiling

Yes I know, the photographers took more than just three photos. My guess at least five hundred... but still

Also look at them from what you can see of body language.
