Young voters slowly abandoning Hope & Change

Great piece by Doug Powers:

But the current drop in youth support isn’t merely due to younger voters finally figuring out that Obama and the Democrats are using their credit card. There’s also what I call “The Peggy Effect.”

Basically “The Peggy Effect” is this: Everybody who voted for Obama because of all the free stuff they’d be getting, such as the famed “Peggy the Moocher” (who was Obama’s freeloading answer to “Joe the Plumber”), have been running to their mailboxes for a year and a half now, and… pretty much nothing. No free mortgage; no free car; no free gas — hell, no free health care yet for that matter. It’s taking a toll on Obama’s approval ratings. (Source: Michelle Malkin)

As Doug points out, maybe it’s sinking in WHO is ultimately paying for all this.
