More ont he Mushy Libertarian Middle

Here is a New York Times video report on Colorado university students in this upcoming election. What they found was that students are more reticent about Obama where they previously were supportive. What we hear is that they are more likely to go Republican because they are concerned about the economic issues. But note that they report that students are economic conservative and socially liberal. The students want less of what the Democrats are giving out in economic terms but want to end the wars, support gay marriage and are socially tolerant. This is what I call the mushy libertarian middle.
