Democrats have had a bad past few years.
From losing the House, the Senate, and the Presidency it doesn’t seem like things could get much worse for them.
But a new poll that just dropped proves that the Democrat party is over.
The one base of support that Democrats consistently hold onto is young people.
Historically, young people have been more likely to side with them.
That is until they grow up and begin having to pay taxes.
But in the past few years, things have begun to change.
According to a new poll that just dropped, millennial support for Democrats has significantly dropped in the past two years.
The Reuters and Ispos poll shows only 49 percent of voters between the ages of 18-34 are likely to support a Democrat.
That’s nearly a 10 percent drop compared to the 2016 iteration of the same poll.
This massive change could have to do with President Donald Trump following through on his promises after being elected.
The historic tax cuts passed last year are already noticeable to anybody taking home a paycheck.
Seeing more money in their paychecks, and then learning that it was Republicans that caused that is a good reason to support Republicans.
But that wasn’t the only good news Republicans received in the recent poll.
According to the poll, millennials are now evenly split on which party has a better economic plan, with 34 percent favoring Democrats, and 32 favoring Republicans.
In 2016, Democrats had a 12 point lead on the same question.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“The latest poll from Reuters and Ispos shows that millennial support for Democrats has significantly dropped over the past two years.
The poll surveyed more than 16,000 registered voters from January through March of this year. The data shows that only 49 percent of voters between the ages of 18-34 are likely to support a Democrat, a nearly 10 percent drop from the 2016 iteration of Reuters’ poll.
While “overt” support for the Republican party did not change from 2016, the same amount of young voters (39 percent) now say they would support a Republican for Congress as a Democrat, erasing the 14 percent gap in the 2016 poll.
Additionally, millennials are now almost evenly split on which party has a better economic plan: 34 percent favored Democrats on the issue, while 32 percent favored Republicans. In 2016, Democrats outperformed Republicans on the economic question by 12 points.
The Reuters poll comes amid speculation that Democrats are primed to take back Congressional majorities in the 2018 midterm elections.”
This new poll is huge new for Republicans.
The 2018 midterm elections are just months away, and every voting demographic will count.
If Republicans are to do well in the midterm elections, it will make it clear the American people are still standing with President Donald Trump.
But if they perform poorly, it will be a bad sign for President Donald Trump.
Do you still stand with President Trump?
