Ron Paul Connects With Youth

Ivy Littlejohn, 13, of Pacolet, S.C. watches as Republican presidential candidate, Rep.  Ron Paul, R-Texas speak in West Columbia, S.C. A 76-year-old great-grandfather who gives eye-glazing speeches on monetary policy, displays a crotchety streak and disappears from the Republican campaign trail for days at a time to rest up is captivating young voters. Texas Rep. Ron Paul's libertarian message clicks with young people, who are supplying zest to his stronger-than-expected presidential campaign. Why would young people gravitate to the oldest guy in the field? “Freedom is a young idea,” says one youthful voter. Story here. (AP Photo/David Goldman, File)

Question: Why is 76YO Ron Paul connecting with today's youth?
