Looks who's winning the young people vote - Emmer!

I looked more closely at the recent Survey/USA poll which shows Dayton's lead over Emmer down to 38% to 36% with Horner now at 18%.

What's interesting is young people 18 to 34 years of age are going for Emmer by a margin of 46% to 30% for Dayton and 9% for Horner.

Maybe young people are becoming more conservative. Or they realize they're the ones left holding the bag to pay for all the social, retirement programs which will likely not be around when they get older. Whatever it's very interesting.

A closer look also reveals Horner is pulling equally from Dayton and Emmer at this stage of the game. I suspect that will change as Horner's liberal policies on taxes, abortion and marriage are revealed to the public.
