One of its front figures is a young woman, and you'd be surprised how many would vote for her 'because she's cool'. Luckily, they're not old enough to vote yet.
Another example is a political party that's rather nationalistic and wants a strict policy on immigrants. To a lot of the before mentioned youth, they're practically nazis. They simply look at a few issues and judge them on that.

I didn't mean to be condescending, Leah.
Dude, you're my age. All I'm saying is that four years of age difference don't really qualify you to start professing utterances of great wisdom on the political capacity of people.
