PELOSI PANICS: 'Millennials' Turning On Democratic Party in STUNNING Poll

01 May, 2018, 13:22 | Author: Orlando Hughes
  • President Trump speaks in Washington on Dec. 18

And they increasingly say the Republican Party is a better steward of the economy.

In particular, 47 percent of white millennials said two years ago they would vote for the Democrats, but now the number is only 39 percent for this year, the poll found.

Reuters spoke with Terry Hood, 34, an African-American who took the poll.

Young supporters of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton gather on the night of her losing effort in the 2016 election.

The year of Cheney's assumption to Congress was a good one for Republicans, as they took control of both chambers of Congress and the White House. This year, it's still at around 28 percent.

Rep. Scott Tipton, a Republican from Colorado's 3rd congressional district, won the 2016 election by 14.3 percent, also is within the 20-point swing margin seen in some other districts' special elections over the past year. She lost faith in social welfare programs she came to believe were misused.

During her convention address, Cheney pointed to policy wins in rolling back regulations and providing increased resources to the military, as well as Republicans' stances on abortion and gun rights as reasons to support the GOP in 2018.

Pelosi said attempting impeachment would be a political "gift" to Republicans in the 2018 elections, but Waters disagreed.

White House Correspondents' dinner 2018: Comedy crossing the line?
On Monday, Wolf seemed to respond to one particular line of the statement . "I do not. Wolf's act, which also included abortion jokes, had some in the audience laughing.

"They're not as wedded to one party", he said.

In New Hampshire, Eddie Edwards is one of two Republicans running for Congress in the 1st District.

In other words: It's still the economy, stupid. "Then people said, 'He hasn't done anything wrong, '...'Oh, that doesn't matter, we will impeach the president'". If Republicans lost only the seats they hold that CNN now rates as toss-ups or leaning toward Democrats, they would lose 28 seats - five more than Democrats need to retake the majority. Of those, 27 percent said they plan to vote in the Democratic primary, and 12 percent plan to vote in the GOP primary.

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.

And, a point I've repeatedly made, millennials grow up. The poll also found a notable shift in a certain demographic.

And some Republicans very much know this information.

As of Monday, almost 35,000 unaffiliated Colorado voters had selected one ballot or the other - and they are so far leaning toward the Democrats, according to figures from the secretary of state's office. "I say "impeach 45" and they go nuts and they agree, and 70 percent of Democrats in a recent poll said he should be impeached". The share of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents who report being registered to vote has slipped from 84 percent in November to 79 percent in January and 75 percent now.

But that doesn't mean they feel the same way about all Republicans - and that also doesn't mean Democratic congressional candidates will get their votes, Reuters noted.
