The Reuters/Ipsos conducted a poll of 16,000 registered voters between the ages of 18-34, asking what party they will vote for in the mid-terms. The goal was to compare the results from 2016 to 2018 for this age group.
The Democrat party supporters dropped with millennials from 2016 to 2018. The millennial support dropped from 55% to 46%, while the Republicans with this same group only dropped from 28%-27%. However, the support from white Millennials had a massive switch. In 2016 White men supported Democrats over Republicans by 12%. But In this recent poll it shows white men prefer Republicans over Democrats by 11% now, this is a 23% switch in white men. This is a rather big switch considering the sample size was 11,000 white people out of the 16,000 used. A switch like this could turn the Blue wave into a Red wave for the 2018 mid-terms.
One can conclude, as time passes more Millennials will switch to the Republican party and leave the Democrat party. My guess for this switch is, the millennial generation have been removed from College long enough to realize in the real-world socialism doesn’t work, and College professors have no clue what they are talking about.
