Ipsos Poll Suggests Millenials Tiring of Democrats

If this poll is right-and as Trump likes to remind everyone all the time, polls have been very wrong on the big stuff before-but if this poll is right, then over the last two years there's been a nine-point drop in the percentage of millennials who say they'll be voting for a Democrat for Congress.

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.

The publication also spoke to Ashley Reed, a 28-year-old "white single mother of three in New Hampshire".

The outlet said such a caveat "presents a potential problem for Democrats" who need to gain 23 seats in order to nab control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November, the outlet said, adding that the Democrats have "come to count on millennials as a core constituency". In 2016, 48 percent supported Democrats. He finds it "strange" to even mutter these words but noticed that the recent tax cuts have led to the government "taking less taxes" out of his paycheck.

The Reuters-Ipsos poll surveyed 16,000 millennial voters online in the first three months of this year.

According to the findings of the poll from two years back, young white people favored Democrats over Republicans for Congress by a margin of 47 to 33 percent.

Almost two-thirds of voters said they weren't a fan of President Trump.

Spear said she would likely vote for a Democrat, but her peers nationally are increasingly looking to Republicans for economic leadership, according to the Reuters/Ipsos poll.

Democrats once had a 10 point lead "among all adults", but that has fallen "to 4 points among registered voters and 5 points among those who say they're both registered and certain to vote".
