This would be more encouraging if I thought they would actually turn out to vote when it really matters:
Democrats beat Republicans by 30 points among millennials on the generic ballot, according to a new American Barometer survey.
The poll, conducted by Hill.TV and the HarrisX polling company found that 56 percent of 18-34 year-olds said they would support a Democratic candidate in November’s midterm elections, while 26 percent said they would support a Republican candidate in their district.
The survey comes as parties and organizations aim to encourage younger adults to vote in the midterms.
“There’s been tremendous effort put forth to turn out that millennial vote. So a lot of money is being spent, a lot of effort is being expended to make sure those millennials voter,” Democratic pollster Mark Mellman told Hill.TV’s Joe Concha on “What America’s Thinking.”
