Poll: Reuters/IPSOS Survey Shows Millennial Support For Democrats Dropped Nine Percent Since 2016…

In an interesting survey of over 16,000 millennial respondents (graphic here) via  Reuters-IPSOS the narrative of a midterm ‘blue wave” evaporates.

According to the large-sample polling, support for Democrats has dropped from 55% in 2016 to 46% now.  That’s a significant decline over 9% from prior surveys, and could be a strong indication the current favored narrative amid DNC media is entirely false.

(Reuters) MANCHESTER, N.H. (Reuters) – Enthusiasm for the Democratic Party is waning among millennials as its candidates head into the crucial midterm congressional elections, according to the Reuters/Ipsos national opinion poll.

The online survey of more than 16,000 registered voters ages 18 to 34 shows their support for Democrats over Republicans for Congress slipped by about 9 percentage points over the past two years, to 46 percent overall. And they increasingly say the Republican Party is a better steward of the economy.

That presents a potential problem for Democrats who have come to count on millennials as a core constituency – and will need all the loyalty they can get to achieve a net gain of 23 seats to capture control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November.

Young voters represent an opportunity and a risk for both parties, said Donald Green, a political science professor at Columbia University in New York City.

“They’re not as wedded to one party,” Green said. “They’re easier to convince than, say, your 50- or 60-year-olds who don’t really change their minds very often.”

Terry Hood, 34, an African-American who works at a Dollar General store in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and took this year’s poll, said he voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

But he will consider a Republican for Congress because he believes the party is making it easier to find jobs and he applauds the recent Republican-led tax cut.

“It sounds strange to me to say this about the Republicans, but they’re helping with even the small things,” Hood said in a phone interview. “They’re taking less taxes out of my paycheck. I notice that.”  (read more)

This is especially bad news for the DNC considering the new era of “Generation Z” is right on the heels of the millennials and Gen-Z is exponentially more in alignment with the MAGA movement as a counter-culture.   More winning…

    Trump (and the stupid party) should forgive student loans for those who serve in the military; it’s a win win all the way around.

    • There is already a college loan repayment plan as an enlistment option. There is also the GI bill… though I think someone with a masters in underwater feminist oppression basket weaving with a minor in patriarchal supremacist interpretative dance won’t do well in the army.

        Funny comment about majors! Trump should rebrand all the “Educational Programs” again to drive quality kids to the military to help secure the nation. As technology expands at an expotential rate within the military, we need those that can shoot a gun, walk 10 miles, know a circut system, and/or calculate with a slide ruler too! Trump is the Branding King!

    America is waking up and many in this nation are finally admitting to themselves the unthinkable. Our federal government is completely corrupt and being run by criminals who have a D or an R by their names, and being assisted by tens of thousands of non-elected bureaucrats! That blue wave the Democrats thought they could ride on into Washington is going to turn into a reverse tsunami wiping them out instead!

    Have to add an antidote. Back during the election week. Told my friend bout young women supporting Trump. He couldn’t believe it. He worked Dollar tree. The night of the election he stopped by. “Bro you wouldn’t believ work, , all the hotties buying (red white and blue) party stuff. I asked them you excited for Hillary (wish he said killary). He said every response was no we are having a party for Trump. He couldn’t believe it. He ended up leaving my house cuz I had tv on fox, 2 lappys on to info wars 2nd RSBN. Also hand map on wall to track votes. He’s still in denial of killerys lost. “Muh polls”

    Michelle Obama’s icky school lunches didn’t help. I know Gen Z’s who were in 6th/7th/8th grade when that happened and it’s a kind of “in your face .gov control” when all of a sudden your lunch becomes what you consider inedible – By.Law.

    Think Pay Check for adults = School Lunch for younger kids. Or a kind of “Don’t Tread on Me” for young kids.

    A little Wake Up Call for young kids on what the Dems were about.

    Now those kids are older, voting age or will be by 2020. The smart ones are over the PC crap that is dished out with such gusto by the Dems and are now Trump supporters.

    Several neighbors kids are like this: Such a joy to see.

    And fun to watch them evolve their opinions over the past few years.

      Great point. My Gen Z kids and elementary school friends stopped buying school lunches when the Michelle Obama mandates came down. They loved the photos kids would tweet of their grim meals.

    Early 80’s millennial here, but I was in the trenches with all this from an early start, so I’ll lay it out for you:

    Millennials grew up staunchly opposed to internet censorship: It started with copyright cartels, but around 2011 FEMINISTS started butting in on the act. Their “activists” began attacking social media and, even more importantly, GAMES.

    Attacking social media was already pissing people off, but those were only the people who knew, who saw the memes mocking feminists being memory-holed, but these arrogant tool sheds attacked the bread and circuses that are video games, demanding censorship, then attacking gamers when they said, in one voice, “don’t preach to us”.

    This was in 2014, well before the elections, and “gamergate” became the incubator of the tactics eventually deployed to help Trump dominate social media, tactics which eventually forced Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube to OPENLY show their manipulation.

    Now, with the censorship becoming so blatant, and the corruption becoming so overt, it’s beginning to cause a red-pill cascade.

    Millennials hate censorship, and, despite the braying of a vocal and annoying minority, the bulk of them despise political correctness as well, they just didn’t know how bad it was.. but they’re starting to learn.

    Soon, all that will be left, of democratic party’base’ will be old hippies, trying to relive the 60’s. Their party has always been far more of a coalition of disparate groups, and its unraveling.
    In addition to losing blue collar workrrs of all colors/genders, and millenials, they are risking losing another group, ironically. The hard core lefties. They are pushing out hcl candidates, in less than deep blue areas. Hcl see it as the party dictating, and they resent it. So, like Repubs in 2012, who ‘stayed home’, these hcl ain’t gonna vote for what they see as a milquetoast moderate candidate. So, the very people the party is catering to, are gonna abandon them.
    IRONIC. There isn’t gonna be a blue wave, never was. It was delusional, wishful thinking. Remember how wonderful Nov. 8th 2016 was? Get ready for reruns. Its gonna be,…FABULOUS!

    I don’t think perpetually angry Tom Perez, toilet-paper-stuck-to-bottom-of-shoe Hillary Clinton, or drunk foul-mothed Carrot Top impersonator are going to attract the millennials to the Dem party.

    I noticed that the riots aren’t happening any more. Now it’s rallies. Imitating Trump, the Dems are. 🙂
