The news media has turned to American University's College Republicans and Democrats to get perspective from young voters as the midterm election draws near.
CNN came to campus for a story on the Republican Party's efforts to reach young voters in this election.
Stephen Laudone, president of AU's College Republicans, told CNN, "Several people I know are—at the least—going to split their ticket this year, whereas in 2008 it was all Democrat. So I definitely think there's a shift."
American University student Michael Worley, the national communications director for the College Democrats of America, appeared on C-SPAN's Washington Journal to discuss the impact of the youth vote in midterm elections.
"College Democrats of America are working on our fall campaign initiative called Again 2010," said Worley. "Right now we’re mobilizing voters on college campuses across the country"
