Thirty Under Thirty 2013

30under30-2013-v2

Last month, CNN brought to light an important shift in young Americans’ attitudes about the direction of the country. Young people, who carried President Barack Obama to victory in the 2012 election, now view President Obama more unfavorably than ever before. According to CNN‘s polling, President Obama’s popularity with young people has dropped 12 points since last November’s election to a mere 48 percent, showing an opportunity for the GOP to win the youth vote in the next national election.

This shift in momentum can be attributed in part to the efforts of young Republicans across the country to better educate their peers about the merits of conservatism and the GOP’s concern for young people.

In our second annual “30 under 30” list, we sought to honor some of the finest young conservative, libertarian and Republican leaders. The young people on this list were selected for their consistent involvement in the movement, their influence on other youth and their heartfelt dedication to American principles, regardless of opposition.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the nomination process. After receiving more than 400 nominations for this year’s exclusive list, we again chose to exclude Red Alert contributors and staff at our sister publications (The Weekly Standard, The Washington Examiner) from consideration. We also opted not to include previous winners in this year’s list in order to give other young leaders the opportunity to shine.
