Bryn Mawr Student Among “Millennials” Interviewed by NPR’s Morning Edition about Their Support of Obama

In 2008, Millennials—those born between 1981 and 1993—voted for President Barack Obama by a ratio of two to one in his race for the White House against Senator John McCain.

According to this NPR Morning Edition story, a new report by the Pew Research Center shows that support of Obama among millennials may be slipping. However, Lillie Catlin ’13 predicts that her generation will once again rally behind Obama once the election season gets into full gear.

“There’s not as much attention, because there’s no primary going on,” says Lillie Catlin, a junior at Bryn Mawr College and an Obama campaign volunteer. “He still has a job to do. So he’s not campaigning as much. And there’s not as much of a frenzy about who will we choose: We already know.”
