    College Republicans are awfully smart!

    COLLEGE REPUBLICANS TELL REPUBLICANS TO NOT BE REPUBLICANS - Also, is there anyone to try Karl Rove for that rapping outbreak a few years back? Luke Johnson: "A report by the College Republican National Committee released Monday found that most students hold positions closer to Democrats on many issues, underscoring the difficulty in the GOP's push for younger voters. Yet, the report remains vague on solutions for Republicans. The report's focus groups, conducted after the 2012 election loss for the GOP, found that young people are mostly liberal on a range of issues -- not surprising given the fact that 60 percent of voters aged 18-29 voted for Obama in 2012, according to Tufts University...The report does not outright call on the Republican party to change its stances on issues to be more amenable to young voters. Instead, it calls for the party to slightly shift its message. For instance, the report states, 'focus on the economic issues that affect young people today: education, the cost of health care, unemployment,' but does not say to embrace Obamacare. It says, 'Don't concede 'caring' and 'open-minded' to the left,' but does not call for the outright backing of gay marriage.'"
