College Freshmen Are More Liberal on Gay Marriage, Abortion

Via: Bl0omberg

First-year college students are more socially liberal than their predecessors on issues such as same- sex marriage and public education for undocumented students, according to an annual survey released today.

More than 71 percent of respondents who were freshmen in 2011 indicated same-sex couples should be able to marry, up from 64.9 percent two years earlier, according to the survey by theHigher Education Research Institute at the University ofCalifornia, Los Angeles.

The survey, which began measuring student opinions and concerns in 1966, also found more students supporting abortion rights, with almost 61 percent saying abortion should be legal.

Forty-three percent opposed denying undocumented students access to public higher education, down from 47.2 percent two years earlier.

I don’t think the GOP/elephants have come to terms with the fact they are out of touch with many young people/voters on the subject of same-sex marriage, abortion, immigration; and I believe, income inequity.

I suggest they might want to put on their swim suits, and soon.
