Youth unlikely to 'rock US vote'

Survey shows sharp drop in number of young willing to participate in the November 2 midterm elections.

    A recent public survey has found many young people in the US are unlikely to vote in the upcoming midterm election. 

    Rock the Vote, an organisation that campaigns to encourage young people to vote, has also reported a dramatic drop in the number of registrees.

    That could spell trouble for the Democrats who got a major boost from young voters back in 2008.
