GOP poll­ster: Young Vot­ers Are Re­ject­ing Both Par­ties

New York Post - - POSTOPINION -

A new poll from the Har­vard In­sti­tute of Pol­i­tics sug­gests vot­ers un­der 30, by a 2-to-1 mar­gin, would pre­fer a Demo­cratic Congress to a GOP one. But the real sur­prise, says Kris­ten So­lis An­der­son at the Washington Ex­am­iner, is “how piti­fully the Demo­cratic Party con­tin­ues to do” with these same vot­ers and its in­abil­ity “to once and for all lock down this gen­er­a­tion.” In fact, she says, “Amer­ica’s young vot­ers are in­creas­ingly opt­ing for ‘none of the above.’ ” An NBC sur­vey last month showed 71 per­cent of mil­len­ni­als say “a third ma­jor party is needed.” The dam­age that the GOP has done to it­self with mil­len­ni­als “is grow­ing worse and worse as the months go by,” she says, “yet, as­ton­ish­ingly, Democrats have not been able to seal the deal.”
