Karl Rove on why more young voters aren't supporting Republican candidates: "Look, the young are those that most keenly feel war. I mean, they see their classmates or their colleagues going off to volunteer for war, and it concerns them. So I understand why that was the case in '04, and the data Ive seen this time around is that the same effect, though not to the same degree, is present in '06."
