The Hill flags a survey from JZ Analytics that puts Mitt Romney's support among 18-29 year old voters at 41%. Barack Obama's support among that group is at 49%, which is not even close to the stunning 66% of the youth vote he grabbed in 2008.
(Pollster John) Zogby says that Romney is the only member of the GOP primary field to score this high among 18-29 year olds. When libertarian candidate Gary Johnson was included in another question, support dropped for Romney, down to 38 percent, while Obama's rose 1 point to 50 percent. Johnson received 5 percent. Removing Johnson from the question previously resulted in a boost for Obama, but this time the amount of support for Romney increased, as did the number of those who are undecided.
Zogby hypothesizes that the rise in youth support for Romney could be due to more libertarian-leaning youth, concern over the economy and debt, and Romney picking Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) as his running mate.
The overall poll had Romney and President Obama tied at 46 percent each.
