Young millennials -- fiscal conservatives?

CHICAGO (AP) -- This generation of young Americans has been called many things, from civic-minded to "entitled." But fiscally conservative?
That's a new one, and it just might have an impact on the presidential election.
Polls show that President Barack Obama remains the favorite among 18- to 29-year-old registered voters, as he was in 2008. No one thinks the majority of young voters will support Republican Mitt Romney in the Nov. 6 election.
But one expert says the polls also hint at a "schism" between those who weren't old enough to vote in 2008 and their older twentysomething counterparts.
In one poll, 42 percent of 18- and 19-year-olds identified as "conservative," compared with just over one-third who said they were "liberal." By comparison, those proportions were nearly flipped for 22- to 24-year-olds.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama will travel to tornado-ravaged Moore, Okla., on Sunday.
That's according to a White House official, who wasn't authorized to publicly discuss the trip ahead of the official announcement and requested anonymity.
A monstrous tornado barreled through the Oklahoma City suburb Tuesday afternoon, demolishing an elementary school and reducing homes to piles of rubble. State authorities say two infants were among the 24 people who perished in the twister.
The town of Moore is a community of 41,000 people located about 10 miles from Oklahoma City.
