Primary election stats suggest GOP youth-voter catastrophe will continue

Low turnout among youth voters for the Republican Super Tuesday primary contests suggests the GOP is making a major strategy misstep this year, analysts told the Colorado Independent. They said that Republican campaign messages to young people are mostly absent, weak or a turn-off and they called youth outreach efforts uninspired.

‘Cousin Ricky’ Santorum’s family is a bunch of old-world red communists

Newt Gingrich speculated last fall that a theoretical family-based "Kenyan anti-colonial worldview" explained President Obama's equally theoretical socialist-leaning "denial of reality." Gingrich has so far let Republican presidential primary rival Rick Santorum off the hook, however, for the unabashed family-based Italian communist worldview that may or may not have shaped Santorum's American political views.
