HAMILTON, N.Y. — College campuses have long been thought of as a breeding ground for political activism, but not for leaning to the right.
Libertarians, like [Colgate University senior Kyle] Gavin, the Colgate College Republicans President, are rapidly changing that.
“I think that’s the future of the Republican Party,” he said.
And he may be right. Gavin and the college Republicans sold out the biggest name in Libertarianism this week: Ron Paul.
Pollster John Zogby said it was fiscal issues that drove these young people to the Libertarians and the GOP.
“Their numbers are growing, particularly as college educated, young, younger people are feeling the squeeze of the recession and more and more rejecting government as a solution,” Zogby said.
