Democrats Lost Big Because Young Voters Stayed Home
voices.washingtonpost.com — Democrats lost a lot of seats. Even more than the economic conditions would've predicted. The question, of course, is why. And the basic answer is that Republican groups came out to vote and Democratic groups didn't. There's going to be a lot of soul-searching among Democrats after this election. Most of it will be about whether they should've been more liberal or more conservative, more ambitious or more modest, more confident or more empathic. But perhaps the most important question isn't what they could've done to make more Americans like them, but what they could've done to get more young voters to the polls.
