14. Well, it makes sense ...

...that there would be a rightward drift among college students. After all, who can afford to go to college anymore? The fucking rich, that's who. More and more the policies of the republicans are shutting off college as a path for the poor, and even the middle class. Minority enrollment is down, even in a "liberal" state like Washington, tuition is going through the roof at the same time that financial resources for the poor and middle class kids are being shut off. My son carries a full class load, and works 40 hours a week to keep himself in school, and prevent his parents from having to sell the house to pay the bills. He doesn't have time for extracurricular activities, like a social life, or politics.

So just because we can discern a more conservative trend among college students, does not mean that trend is reflective of youth in general.
