Ipsos Poll Suggests Millenials Tiring of Democrats

Bill Clark  CQ-Roll Call Group

Also, if this poll is to be believed, then something particularly significant is happening among white male millennials-who, unlike millennials as a whole, seem to know exactly who they're ditching the Democrats for: Republicans. Support for Democrats among millennials overall has dropped ten points since the 2016 election, although very little of that has yet translated to support for Republicans - on th etop line, anyyway. A growing share of voters between ages 18 and 34 told Reuters they were undecided, would support a third-party candidate or not vote at all. It's down about 9 percent in two years and more millennials now think that "the Republican Party is a better steward of the economy".

The publication also spoke to Ashley Reed, a 28-year-old "white single mother of three in New Hampshire".

This could be incredibly problematic for the Democrats' efforts to gain control of 23 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, in order to win back that chamber-because millennials have emerged as one of the Democrats' core constituencies. In a phone interview with Reuters, Hood said, "It sounds unusual to me to say this about the Republicans, but they're helping with even the small things", and "They're taking less taxes out of my paycheck".

The poll, according to Reuters, has a credibility interval of 1 percentage point, meaning that results may vary by about 1 percentage point in either direction.

What does a political science professor have to say about the poll's findings?

The poll - which surveyed young voters in the first three months of 2018 and the first three months of 2016 - noted that only 28 percent of participants overtly supported Republicans in both time periods, the outlet reported.

Meanwhile, at a campaign event at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, Mindi Messmer, one of eight Democrats running in the primary election, touted her work as an environmental crusader.

In other words: It's still the economy, stupid.

The generation is split on whether the Democrats or the Republicans are better to run the economy, but two years ago, the generation heavily favored Democrats.

The Democrats are hoping for a "Blue Wave" of victories in the upcoming midterm elections.

She said on the 2016 failure, "Instead of having real conversations with them, we settled for TV ads".
