The inspirational Democratic President that enjoyed fervent support from college-aged voters in the 2008 elections is now attempting to re-ignite the fire to help stave off a landslide loss for his party in 2010. Of polled 18-29 year-olds, just 53% say they will definitely vote in the coming election, compared to 80% of people over 50 who said they will vote.

“It is inexcusable for any Democrat or progressive right now to stand on the sidelines this midterm election,” Obama said in an interview earlier this year. “If everybody who fought for change in 2008 shows up to vote in 2010, we will win. We will win,” he said. “The polls say the same thing. We will win.”

President Obama’s youth town hall, being called “A Conversation With President Obama,” will be broadcast on MTV, MTVu, BET, Centric, TR3s and CMT at 4 p.m. Eastern Time. No stranger to random Q&A’s, the President will answer questions posed via Twitter during the hour-long time slot. Streaming videos and audio will be available on MTV.com and BET.com as well.

“The idea that we’ve got a lack of enthusiasm in the Democratic base, that people are sitting on their hands complaining, is just irresponsible,” the president said.

The outlook has gone from bad to worse for Democrats as more and more Republican and Tea Party candidates are winning polls for the elections on Nov. 2. Sporting an invigorated voter base and taking advantage of poor economic conditions, it is now the Republican candidates preaching the gospel of “Change,” and we’ve all seen how effective that can be.

A landslide win for the GOP could put the President and Congress in a stalemate for the remainder of the President’s term, and further tarnish the image of the Democratic White House. If the President Obama youth town hall meeting to change the picture of the White House is anything, it’s a strategic move of desperation. Still, I think we’ve all learned not to bet against the rallying power of this Democrat. We’ll have to wait and see to find out how it all shakes down in November. What do you think of the President’s outreach to young voters? Will it make a difference in the upcoming mid-terms? Let me know in the comment section! And check out the photos of the President, plus a video of a rally for teens he did in China below!
