Top Dem Pollster: ‘Very Real Risk’ Millennials Won’t Turn Out for Left in ’18 per Breitbart
Here's some American polling that the BBC won't be reporting upon. Breitbart have this piece http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/05/19/top-dem-pollster-very-real-risk-millennials-wont-turn-out-for-left-in-18/ and here's an extract:
'Stanley Greenberg, one of the top Democratic pollsters, warned that there is a "very real risk" that young voters will not turn out for Democrats in the 2018 midterm elections.
Greenberg's remarks to the Atlantic's Ron Brownstein this week underscores how the left is getting more worried that the so-called "blue wave" they once took for granted may not materialize in November.
A recent CNN midterm poll, for instance, found that Democrats only have a three-point advantage over Republicans, as the percentage of Americans who think things are going "well" in America is at its highest since 2007.
A recent Reuters poll also found that support for Democrats among millennials aged 18 to 34 "slipped by about 9 percentage points over the past two years." In addition, the extensive Reuters survey found that millennials are increasingly saying that "the Republican Party is a better steward of the economy."
Reuters interviewed "Terry Hood, 34, an African-American who works at a Dollar General store in Baton Rouge."
Hood told the outlet that though he voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, he was open to voting for a Republican for Congress in the midterms "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 told Reuters. "They're taking less taxes out of my paycheck. I notice that."'
That's not on message so the BBC will ignore it and so be all shocked, again, if the mid-term results go against them.
