Seven out of every 10
college students believe that religion is important in their lives, according
to a poll by HarvardUniversity’s Institute of Politics.
So it’s not surprising that most say they view key political issues through a
moral lens — signaling that they intend to vote according to what they think is
right, not what seems most beneficial or expedient to them. “If [politicians]
are going to go after this demographic, it’s not just about the issues but
about fairness and morality,” said Harvard lecturer David King, who supervised
the survey. “What I hope politicians will talk about is whether their policies
are fundamentally just or unjust.”
