There are reports coming put of the Minnesota Republican caucus last night that many young people — often young couples — came into the caucus, filled out their straw vote ballot (it’s not binding) for Santorum, and left. They seemed to be first-time caucus-goers, and they had no interest in the party sausage-making.
The assumption is that they were from conservative evangelical churches and Catholic parishes.
I’m not passing judgement. Cuz that’s exactly what I did four years ago — just for the other party.
