A generation of U.S. citizens born between 1968 and 1976. These citizens most formative years coincided with the 8-year term of President Ronald Reagan. They remember the fear, malaise and uncertainty of the Carter Presidency and were uplifted by the core beliefs of the Reagan Revolution (1981-1989). Peace through strength, low taxes, limited government, right to life and eternal optimism in America's future are the backbone of this generation's political beliefs.
The Republican candidate must carry the Reagan Youth vote if he is going to thwart his opponent's chance at winning Jimmy Carter's second term.
