article imageVideo: Ole Miss students unhappy at Obama's re-election

By Can Tran     Nov 7, 2012 in Politics
Video taken on Election Night at Ole Miss shows that not all college-age voters are expressing their support to Barack Obama who won re-election on Election Night.
Barack Obama, the Democratic incumbent, has won the 2012 United States Presidential Election and will be serving out another four years in his second term. According to several news reports, Obama has once again received helpful support from voters aged between 18 and 29. About 60 percent voted for Obama while 36 voted for GOP nominee Mitt Romney.
Christian Science Monitor reported that if Romney received at least half the votes from that age group in Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, he'd get those electoral votes. In short, Obama had received plenty of votes from minority and younger voters. However, not all young voters were casting their votes for Obama. Students attending college at the University of Mississippi, known as “Ole Miss,” weren't voting for Obama.
These students expressed their anger at Obama's re-election by taking it to the streets. They took to the social networks and a protest grew into numbers reaching the hundreds. According to WMCTV.com, there were students that took to igniting Obama-Biden signs on fire. Some of the police reported to hear some students yelling racial slurs.
Dan Jones, the chancellor of Ole Miss, weighed in. Jones expressed disappointment in the actions that the students took in regards to protesting Obama's re-election. So far, two arrests have been made by police and nobody was hurt.
According to conservative bloggers, black youth could have rioted if Obama had lost. In short, there are college-age voters not at all happy about Obama's re-election.
