In yet another bad sign for the Democrats and Joe Biden, it appears that young voters are increasingly turning against them.
According to a recent article by the Washington Examiner, young people are not nearly as happy with Biden as they were only a year ago.
On average, fewer than 3 in 10 adults under the age of 30 approve of Biden’s job performance as president, and a majority disapproves, according to online polling conducted by the Economist and YouGov. Biden’s net negative 21 approval rating with the demographic is his worst among any age group, the organizations found. On top of that, Biden has a net negative 17 rating among people aged between 30 and 44.
The Economist-YouGov findings suggest Biden’s popularity is dropping fastest with younger people, who earlier this year rewarded him with a net 32 approval rating. Biden currently has a negative 5 rating among adults aged 45 to 64, and a negative 8 with those 65 and older.
The Economist-YouGov polling is not an outlier, aligning with Quinnipiac University data. In Quinnipiac’s first national survey of Biden’s presidency in February, 18- to 34-year-olds gave him a net 12 approval rating while he scored a net 15 rating from 35- to 49-year-olds. That plummeted to a net negative 10 among the former and a negative 21 with the latter last month.
These numbers should serve as a warning for the Democrat Party ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, not to mention the the 2024 presidential election.
Already the left’s lapdogs in the media are repeatedly warning that the Democrat Party is about to suffer a major drubbing in 2022. They are clearly warning the party to fix their path to reverse the mess that is coming.
It isn’t likely that the Democrats will heed the call, though.
The big question is if the Republicans are able to win without messing it all up. They don’t call the GOP the “stupid party” for nothing.
