The Young choose Entertainers over Politicians … Can you Blame them?

 Bush_Bono

From the Pew Research Center’s new Survey of Young Americans:

Overall, entertainers trump political leaders as
admired figures among Nexters by nearly a two-to-one
margin. Only 8% of young people named a current or
former elected official when asked who they admire
most. Politicians are much more popular with the older
generations (20%).

Can you blame them?  Let’s face it,  the politicians of the modern era don’t exactly have the power of a Nelson Mandela.
