  • Democrats aren't passing torch to a new generation

U.S. Democrats appear to have lost visible support among millennials with an eye to midterm elections scheduled in November, according to a new poll released Monday.

However, they are not painting the entire Republican party with a broad brush because of the words and actions of the President.

A new poll from Reuters/Ipsos found 9% fewer millennials - people defined as age 18-34 - are interested in the Democratic Party when compared to just two years ago, Reuters News Agency reported. If they don't, they will be mailed two ballots in the mail - one for each major party.

"They're easier to convince than, say, your 50- or 60-year-olds who don't really change their minds very often", he added to the outlet.

However, the survey showed that doesn't translate to the remaining respondents going Democratic, Reuters noted.

"By allowing unaffiliated voters to vote, we believe our elected officials will be rewarded for solving problems and finding solutions", Kelly Brough, president and CEO of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, which supported Prop 108, said at a recent event. With nearly 90 percent of the precincts reporting late Tuesday, Mayer was ahead by 16 percentage points.

Ashley Reed, a white single mother of three in New Hampshire, told Reuters that her adolescent fascination with Democrat Barack Obama led her to support his presidency in 2008.

That gap has reportedly vanished by this year, with 39 percent supporting each party.

Owaida is the second teenager killed by Israeli fire recently, following the death of Mohhamed Ayoush, 15 , last week. This occupation has had a devastating impact on the lives of the almost two million Palestinians living in the area.

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.

In other words: It's still the economy, stupid.

And though Arizona's 8th Congressional District saw Republican Debbie Lesko edging out her Democratic opponent this week, the margin of victory in the Republican-leaning district could also suggest reason for the GOP to be concerned when looking at the big picture.

Young supporters of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton gather on the night of her losing effort in the 2016 election. "Instead of having real conversations with them, we settled for TV ads", she said.

Republicans fare poorly in the poll. He also argues that public secondary schools must better prepare students to find jobs without attending college, according to Reuters. "Unless you're addressing those issues that are important to them, it's hard to get them involved".

As part of the Secretary of State's campaign to educate unaffiliated voters about their involvement in primary elections, the office commissioned a poll, conducted in December, to gauge how many might participate and which way they lean politically.

The poll consisted of over 16,000 registered voters ages 18 to 34.

The poll, according to Reuters, has a credibility interval of 1 percentage point, meaning that results may vary by about 1 percentage point in either direction.
