5. Including the AIGA document and other sources, what are the issues cited for this group not voting?

-Peace and relative prosperity. (no foundation shaking events to bring about national patriotism, 9/11 wasn’t enough)

-Cable. (More emphasis on entertainment television as opposed to the news and the newspaper.

-Voter education and lack of interest- Senate has considered lowering the voting age to 17 to get kids more interested in politics early on.

-Candidates do not support this age groups issues because of the lack of voters in the pool. (Because they don’t vote they don’t care about the issues important to this demographic).

-Sub-par public speaking- No longer do candidates try and set themselves apart with enthrawling speeches and promises of a better life, but now are more focused on putting down their opponent and telling you why you should not vote for the opponent and not explaining why you should vote for them.
