    Don't say "fasination". That's not a word.

    On a related note, don't say "fascination" either. It's so over-used in personal statements.

    If you insist on using it, I believe the third one is correct.

    I would go for, "My fascination for/of politics..."

    I wouldn't include 'subject'.

    It should be FOR but i would seriously advise you to change that line completely. Many people begin with that and it's not original. Try to think of something that would capture the readers attention immediately, but unfortunately this line does not do that....

    However, it may not necessarily be that big a negative. Good luck with your app Xx

    I would use 'with'. And no 'the subject of', just 'fascination with politics...'

    Scrap the whole thing. Seriously. Like Potally_Tissed said it's a horrible, overused, clichéd phrase.

    I guess that your fascination of politics started from a young age right?

    Seriously, people need to find a new opening line.
