Hey Director of Polling at the Institute of Politics,
John D. Volpe:
A recent IOP study found that over 70 percent of young voters were not sure if they would vote in the midterm elections. How do you think politicians can get more students interested in voting?
"I think that politicians need to honestly engage young people. And it seems relatively simple, but very few politicians have done that effectively in the past few years. Young people were part of everything Obama did, whether it was campaigning or how he spent his time. The issues he talked about were of the utmost importance to them. It was honest conversation that turned into an honest relationship. You can’t turn something on and turn something off."
