Experiment Shows Youth Opinion Depends On 'Being Told'

Indeed, it's true.

Young folks formulate their positions on things based on the stuff they're told, the stuff they hear.

It's that easy to manipulate their minds. You just got to feed them the info.

I just love it when folks get serious and endeavor to demonstrate how things work. The experiment in question here demonstrates the power of information/disinformation via the mass media.

Previously, we reported to you that our national polling showed that the under-30 voters were the strongest supporters of the Obama healthcare initiative.

While seniors opposed it by almost 2-to-1 and voters ages 30-64 opposed it by five- to 10-point margins, the under-30 voters backed his program by 58-30.

So with the funds you have donated, we ran television advertisements and an Internet campaign aimed at young people focused in Arkansas, North Dakota, and Maine. The results are incredible! Now under-30 voters are the strongest opponents of the plan. In the table below, we show you the vote on the Obama plan broken down by age. (We aggregated all three states so we would have enough interviews to make the age subsets statistically meaningful.)


These data are from polls the League of American Voters commissioned John Zogby to conduct. Commenting on the results, John said, "These results among 18- to 29-year-olds are striking. It puts in jeopardy the whole theory of the new Democratic majority, because young people are essential to that base."
Obviously, the Obamacrat Reich has a strong interest in keeping people in the dark and feeding them crap. The proverbial "mushroom treatment", you know.

This is why the Obamacrats hate the likes of FOX News, World Net Daily, Drudge Report, Rush Limbaugh, etc., because they're giving the people all kinds of factual information the Obamacrats don't want them to have, and which the Big Old Media (ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, NYT, etc, etc), who're brainlessly onside with the Obamacrat Agenda, steadfastly refuse to mention at all as long as they can get away with it.
