If you’re wondering why voters under the age of 30 tend to vote by a margin of 2 to 1 for Democrats over Republicans, it might have something to do with the fact that they are hurting more during this recession than the baby boomers.

Mike Papantonio talks about this generational gap in America with investigative journalist Lizzy Ratner.
