US Democrats lose ground with millennials – Reuters/Ipsos poll

US Democrats lose ground with millennials – Reuters/Ipsos poll, by Chris Kahn.

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. …

The shift is away from the Democrats, but not necessarily to anyone:

Only 28 percent of those polled expressed overt support for Republicans in the 2018 poll — about the same percentage as two years earlier.

But that does not mean the rest will turn out to back Democrats, the survey showed. A growing share of voters between ages 18 and 34 years old said they were undecided, would support a third-party candidate or not vote at all.

The shift away from Democrats was more pronounced among white millennials – who accounted for two-thirds of all votes cast in that age group in 2016.

Identity politics as practiced by the left demonizes whites. Hmmm, maybe whites are noticing and some don’t like it? Could be a basic flaw in the left’s strategy.
