The more clueless they are, the more likely they will vote Democrat.

(The Hill) — Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) said late last week that the United States should lower the voting age by two years, to 16.

“Why shouldn’t 16-year-old vote?” Ellison tweeted last week, according to Minnesota’s Fridley Patch. “They can drive. Some have jobs. Let’s empower our youth.”

The Patch said Ellison’s message started a Twitter debate on the subject, in which some said teens that young are not informed enough to vote. But Ellison rejected that.

“Oh come on! 16-year-olds are pretty sharp,” Ellison wrote. “When is last time you talked to teens? They have their own views on things.”
