Well, one can certainly hope.

"Obama Is Losing His Rock-star Status Among Young Voters" by Michael Barone.

In his campus speeches, Obama stumped for keeping low interest rates on student loans.
But young people may be figuring out that colleges and universities are gobbling up the money government pours in, leaving them saddled with debt.
It's a side issue. The Harvard survey showed 58% of millennials saying the economy was a top issue and only 41% approving Obama's handling of it. Like Romney, they seem to be saying, "It's the economy, and we're not stupid."

Fat lot of good a 'slightly cheaper' student loan (ie. slightly smaller debt) will do, if you can't find a job to pay it off.  As Dennis Prager points out succinctly here, next November's election is not just an election, but a "plebiscite on the definition of America."
