The youth vote and ‘it’s the economy, stupid’

    Obama, Romney, the youth vote, the hispanic vote, Mormonism, Protestantism, and the election. 
    Here’s a full description of this week’s segment:

    Obama was out and about on college campuses this week, trying to secure the youth vote. Romney talked about youth issues as well. Where does the under 30 vote stand at this point – both in terms of whom they support and most importantly, their turnout potential?
    Romney appeared in PA with FL Sen. Marco Rubio, sparking buzz that Rubio might be the nation’s first Hispanic Veep nominee. Where does the Hispanic vote stand now?
    Taking everything into account, who is going to win the election next Nov. 6th?
    Is it still “the economy stupid” when it comes to the issue that is driving this election?
    We are down to a Protestant (Obama) versus a Mormon (Romney) in this election. How much of a factor is religion in this election?
