The Temple News: College Democrats and Republicans debate


Last week, Temple University’s College Republicans and College Democrats debated their respective national party’s platforms, as reported by The Temple News.

It interests me how young people – indeed, perhaps all people – are more interested in the celebrity-type status of national politics, rather than the local politics of municipalities, counties, even state government.

The interplay of national and local politicking and government is something on which I’ve posted here before.

Because younger people tend to be more liberal and most people seem to be less interested in local elections, it seems then that the Republican Party anywhere would have more difficulty finding young talent, particularly in an urban setting like Philadelphia.
