2014 Elections, Issues

In Contrast to 2010, Over Half of “Likely” Young Voters Prefer a Republican-controlled Congress.


A newlogo national poll of America’s 18- to 29- year-olds by Harvard’s Institute of Politics (IOP), located at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, finds slightly more than half (51%) of young Americans (so-called Millennials) who say they will “definitely be voting” in November prefer a Republican-run Congress with 47 percent favoring Democrat control – a significant departure from IOP polling findings before the last midterm elections (Sept. 2010 – 55%: prefer Democrat control; 43%: prefer Republican control). The cohort – 26% of whom report they will “definitely” vote in the midterms – appear up-for-grabs to both political parties and could be a critical swing vote in many races in November.

Ethnicity still plays a part although support is weakening amongst Hispanics. The 2010 Harvard poll was an accurate predictor of the ultimate result.

    I am afraid they have just lied to you . Most of them are indoctrinated and will follow Obama everywhere.
