Polls Show Millennials Hate Trump, Would Overwhelmingly Back Clinton
by Ryan Denson –
The notion that millennials are stupid, spoiled, uninformed voters who only care about themselves was shredded today after a new poll from the Harvard Institute of Politics showed millennial voters would overwhelmingly back Hillary Clinton in a general election matchup with Donald Trump.
Collecting responses from over three thousand 18-29 year old voters showed Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton would garner 60 percent to Trump’s 25 percent, an astonishing 36 point lead, while 14 percent remain undecided.
So, in other words, the “selfish, uninformed, spoiled” millennials wouldn’t back the actual selfish, spoiled, uninformed Republican front-runner. Go figure.
Not only do millennials overall have a highly unfavorable view of Trump overall, he isn’t all that popular amongst young Republicans, either. His bombastic, hateful nature has rubbed some young Republicans the wrong way:
- Thirteen percent of Republicans would back Hillary Clinton verses 5 percent of Democrats who would back Trump.
- Clinton leads whites (who are more likely to vote Republican) by six points.
- Only fifty-one percent of Trump backers said they were enthusiastic, while 49 percent said they weren’t.
Overall, 60 percent of millennials want to see a Democrat occupy the White House in 2017, up five points from last year, while 40 percent want a Republican. It seems even Republicans aren’t so keen on having a racist, sexist, bombastic blowhard being their commander-in-chief. When it comes to sheer image, Trump’s favorability is negative 57 percent (17 percent favorable, 74 percent unfavorable).
Harvard IOP polling director John Della Volpe told reporters Monday that Trump is playing a similar role in helping the Democratic nominee as former President George W. Bush did during Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign.
“I don’t think there’s a question about that,” he said, “and there’s a lot of evidence that suggests that that’s the case.”
The day has come when Donald Trump is more hated than George W. Bush. Democrats didn’t even have to do anything. Congratulations, GOP, you built that.
