Harvard Poll Says Millennial Voters Are Abandoning Obama For The GOP
Good. For. Them.
Obama and many other Democrats successfully wooed young voters in the last two elections but what have they done for them? Unemployment rates for all Americans are terrible but they’re through the roof for recent college grads who are saddled with debt because of (drum roll please) liberal borrowing policies.

Shocking Harvard poll: Millennial voters want GOP in charge, abandon Obama
Harvard University on Wednesday provided new proof that the Democrats are going to be broadsided in Tuesday’s national elections as millennial voters, in a shocking shift, now prefer a Republican-controlled Congress and give President Obama his second lowest grade ever.
A new and massive poll of 2,029 18- to 29-year-olds from Harvard’s Institute of Politics just released found that of those who say they will “definitely be voting,” 51 percent want the GOP in charge, 47 percent favoring Democratic control.
The unexpected anti-Democratic swing prompted a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter quizzing poll experts on a media conference call to IOP blurted out, “How did the Democrats and Obama screw this up?”
As a blogger for College Insurrection, I keep up with the issues facing college students on a regular basis and I have a recommendation for the Republican Party.
If the GOP likes this trend, they can keep it moving in their direction by taking a serious approach to higher education reform. If they win the senate next week, they’ll be in a perfect position to do so.
Make it happen.
