In the latest Quinnipiac University poll, Hillary Clinton has dropped 17 percent with 18-34 voters in just a month.
17 percent. That’s a lot.
Johnson gained 13 percent with 18-34 voters in the last month, and Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein picked up 4 percent.
Donald Trump is down 2 percent with young voters. They really don’t like him.
Here’s a shot of the poll graphic I took this morning courtesy of MSNBC’s Morning Joe:
Clinton is trying to improve her millennial outreach. It’s been pretty lame. Left-leaning Mother Jones reports:
Hillary Clinton is worried about the kids. The Democratic candidate kicked off the week with a push to win over millennial voters who haven’t lined up behind her candidacy, penning an op-ed on the millennial-focused website Mic and hosting a rally aimed at millennials in Philadelphia on Monday. But the gist of her appeal at the rally was essentially the same as her broader campaign message: Elect me because President Donald Trump is too terrifying to fathom.
The campaign has also trotted Bernie Sanders out to try to sell young voters on Hillary.
Time reported Sunday, Clinton “has been trailing in her own goal to motivate and excite the young voters that formed the core of Barack Obama’s winning coalition in 2008 and 2012.”
“Obama won 60% of these voters under the age of 30 during the re-election campaign, according to 2012 exit polls,” Time continued. “Clinton’s support stands at 48% in these ages, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Sept. 15.”
“Among the same voters, Republican nominee Donald Trump trails at 29% support, and 21% of respondents said they would support another candidate or stay at home.”
In early August, an Investor’s Business Daily/TIPP poll had Johnson beating both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton among registered voters under 25.
Johnson took 35 percent of young voters, Clinton had 30, Stein received 14 percent, and Trump only got 12 percent.
In July, Gallup reported that Clinton had a continuing problem with youth voters, and as November nears, it only seems to be getting worse.
