The Mitt Romney campaign has made a lot of noise about their push for younger voters. Earlier this month, Romney told a crowd that young people “have to” vote for him in November, and in the last several days he has made a point to address issues like college affordability and student loan reform.

But his message may not be having its desired impact. Romney gave a speech at Otterbein University in Ohio today, and the crowd was…less than enthralled. It did however provide a stark contrast to President Obama’s recent college appearances, including one just yesterday at the University of Iowa. Compare the two events below:

Romney’s Advice To Students: Borrow Money From Your Parents

Boehner: Romney’s Wealth Won’t Hurt Him Because ‘The American People Don’t Want To Vote For A Loser’
