Both presidential candidates are trying their hardest to reach out to young voters with varying degrees of success. Mitt Romney has been chipping away at President Obama‘s lead with young voters, but new information (Correction: the report card has been available since 2007 when the Boston Globe did a biographical series on Romney.) has come to light about Romney’s personal background that young voters can easily relate to: high school report cards. Yes, somehow Boston.com got its hands on a report card from Romney’s freshman year of high school.
Romney took English 3, Elementary Algebra, Biology, French 1, and Art 3. He is credited in his art class for having a “real ability in painting,” but admitted that Romney is “not as industrious or as responsible as he might be.”
The rest of the report card contains similar comments about Romney’s potential to do better in class, and under additional comments, the following is written about Romney’s overall performance.
“Mitt is doing well. He is a more responsible citizen this year.”
Here’s the report in full.
