  • Why a Republican Pollster Is Losing Faith in Her Party (You're the reason, naturally)

    “If I pack up my toys and go home, there are people in red MAGA hats who would be saying, ‘Don’t let the door hit you on your way out.’” Kristen Soltis Anderson is losing faith in her party. And that should trigger alarms for Republican leaders concerned about the GOP’s long-term health. Anderson is a smart and telegenic young Republican pollster. She has specialized in studying how the party can improve its anemic performance among the Millennial generation, which will pass the right-leaning baby boomers to become the largest generation of eligible voters in 2018. Now she is wondering...

    ERIE, PA — Max Bloomstine has a positive view of the nation’s growing diversity, believes the American dream is attainable (but doesn’t believe he’s entitled to it) and is more into the “we” instead of the “me.” He is politically independent but leans conservative, attends church on a regular basis, and views his parents — not sports figures or celebrities — as role models. Right now, though, two things weigh heavily on his mind: where to attend college next year (It’s either going to be the University of Pittsburgh or Rochester) and working on a summer job. “I am a...

    As stunned Conservatives struggled to explain their election losses in the United Kingdom on Friday morning, one factor emerged as decisive: namely, the high turnout of young voters. The BBC reported anecdotal evidence — not yet backed by formal proof, though widely believed — that a surge in young voters propelled Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and his party to historic gains, while holding Prime Minister Theresa May’s party below a majority. What could have propelled young people to support an aging white male politician, whose political views are a throwback to the stodgy, pre-Tony Blair days of the British left?  
  • Young Americans: Most see Trump as illegitimate president

    WASHINGTON — Jermaine Anderson keeps going back to the same memory of Donald Trump, then a candidate for president of the United States, referring to some Mexican immigrants as rapists and murderers. "You can't be saying that (if) you're the president," says Anderson, a 21-year-old student from Coconut Creek, Florida. That Trump is undeniably the nation's 45th president doesn't sit easily with young Americans like Anderson who are the nation's increasingly diverse electorate of the future, according to a new poll. A majority of young adults — 57 percent — see Trump's presidency as illegitimate, including about three-quarters of blacks...

    Hillary's campaign has lots of excuses for losing. The electoral college, James Comey, the media's alleged over-exuberance in digging into Clinton's email server, etc. But Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said Thursday that one particular group is especially to blame: millennials. *snip* Where the campaign needed to win upward of 60 percent of young voters, it was able to garner something “in the high 50s...” Mook said. “That’s why we lost.” The national exit poll shows Clinton underperformed Barack Obama's 2012 share of the vote by one point with those between the ages of 30 and 44 and by three points with...

There's the electoral college, James Comey, the media's alleged over-exuberance in digging into Clinton's email server, etc. But Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said Thursday that one particular group is especially to blame: millennials. As Karen Tumulty and Philip Rucker reported from the big election postmortem at Harvard on Thursday night: Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook also acknowledged that her operation had made a number of mistakes and miscalculations, while being buffeted by what he repeatedly described as a "headwind" of being an establishment candidate in a season where voters were...

    Hillary Clinton would have won in a landslide if only young people had voted, President Obama said in an interview with Rolling Stone published Tuesday. "If you look at the data from the election, if it were just young people who were voting, Hillary would have gotten 500 electoral votes," Obama told the Rolling Stone. "So we have helped, I think, shape a generation to think about being inclusive, being fair, caring about the environment." Young Americans, he said, "will have growing influence year by year, which means that America over time will continue to get better."

    In 2008, when Barack Obama first captured the enthusiasm of millennials across America, 67 percent of voters aged 18-29 cast their ballots for the nation’s first African American president. Eight years later, with a chance to elect America’s first female president, an estimated 55 percent – or 13 million of the 23.7 million under-30 millennials who voted – chose Clinton, according to exit poll data from the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE). “There’s been a clear drop-off in enthusiasm,” Paul Taylor, author of “The Next America: Boomers, Millennials, and the Looming Generational Showdown,” said...

    Before a crowd of several hundred students at FSU’s Oglesby Union State Ballroom — cordoned off to make the audience appear more compact — the Democratic vice-presidental nominee cited three reasons to vote early: potential Russian involvement in the election process, Trump’s claim of election rigging and the difficulty of electing a woman to be president in the United States. . . . Kaine was joined by former NASA astronaut Mark Kelly and former Rep. Gabby Gifford’s (D-AZ), both of who are Clinton supporters and gun control activists.

    Breitbart Senior Editor MILO spoke at the Georgia Millennials For Trump rally to a packed (600+) room of young (80%) Republicans and conservatives.  Local Georgia pols and activists were there to get the crowd fired up at this well organized event. MILO gave his usual brilliant, funny-but-deadly-serious, no-holds-barred attack on Hillary, feminists, social justice warriors, and the Left.  He even took a pot shot at Paul Ryan.  Great! For a couple weeks, I've been captivated watching MILO's videos of his Dangerous Faggot Tour visits to colleges/universities across the country.  When I finally saw the artist in person yesterday, he...

    A small crowd greeted Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton’s daughter Chelsea at a campaign stop in Sioux City, Iowa on Tuesday. At the Orpheum theater, Chelsea defended her mother and attacked Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump to a crowd reported to include just 125 people. Chelsea Clinton told those in attendance that she doesn’t want to live in a country with what she called the “demeaning speak” of Trump. “The demeaning speak against Americans with disabilities, against women, against minorities, against Muslims, against immigrants, against our veterans, against a gold-star family,” Clinton said. “None of that is the country that I...

    Hillary Clinton’s inability to attract White voters is very bad; yet her inability to excite 18 to 29 year old voters is the stuff of nightmares. With little more than a month until Election Day it is becoming clear that the media is juggling their poll results as hard as they can to help their newsroom goddess; but people just don’t like Hillary Clinton. A recent Washington Post/ABC NEWS survey shows Donald Trump is ahead by a staggering 65/25 with White men and just down 44/46 with White women. Combined with at least a 72% White turnout, (but likely 74%...

    Former vice president Al Gore will start campaigning for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, according to individuals briefed on the plan, in an effort to mobilize young voters who see climate change as a key issue. The decision by Gore to plunge into the campaign during the final weeks shows the extent to which Democrats remain concerned that Clinton has yet to connect with many millennials, some of whom are backing third-party candidates this year.

    Hillary Clinton's campaign on Saturday responded to a leaked recording of her commenting on Bernie Sanders supporters during the primary, saying she was "inspired" by young voters who backed the Vermont senator. "As Hillary Clinton said in those remarks, she wants young people to be idealistic and set big goals. She is fighting for exactly what millennial generation cares most about — a fairer more equal, just world. She's working to create new pathways to jobs and career opportunities, to build more inclusivity and community, and to ensure everyone gets a fair shot," the statement read. Clinton's campaign called young...

    Hillary Clinton announced Friday that she wants to enlist 5 million new volunteers into a “national service reserve” aimed at 18- to 30-year-olds. “What if we strengthen the culture of service in America? So it wasn’t just something we did one day a year, but it became a regular part of our lives,” she asked in a Florida rally on the topic of national service Friday. The former secretary of state argued that her volunteer plan would help combat growing self-segregation in America, where people surround themselves with people who think, talk, look and read the same news as them....
