Upcoming Midterms About To Smash Historic Record

The turnout among young voters is expected to exceed or match the levels of turnout in the 2018 election according to the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School.

A recent poll by the institute showed that 40 percent of those between the ages of 18 and 20 had said that they would “definitely” be voting in the upcoming midterm elections. This is a similar percentage to the one ahead of the 2018 election.

Around 18 percent of all respondents also said that there is a “50-50” chance of them casting a ballot. Twelve percent also said that they would “definitely” not vote in the upcoming elections.

The poll also found that 47 percent of white respondents, 36 percent of Black respondents, and 30 percent of Hispanic respondents, said they would cast their vote.

Among young voters, 57 percent said that they were hoping the Democrats would control Congress, while 31 percent said the Republicans should have control.

In terms of the key issues for this midterm election, 29 percent said that inflation was the most important issue to be dealt with. Sixteen percent said it was important to safeguard democracy and abortion access, while 14 percent appear to consider climate change a key concern.

Young respondents also had a high percentage, 73 percent, of people who claim that the rights of other Americans were threatened. Only 6 percent appeared to disagree with the statement. Fifty-nine percent also said that their rights were under attack, while 15 percent disagreed with that statement.

Joe Biden’s approval rate according to this poll is around 39 percent, marking a 2 percent drop.

  1. This is a very simple elections period. If you are not happy with the way things are being run, no longer feel safe at home, at work, or in your car, are paying through the nose for anything from Gas to Groceries, have had your savings dwindle down to where you live paycheck to paycheck, and you see no help but more hinderance with no future, then perhaps you need to vote for a change. Voting Democrat today is just prolonging the agony of a complete nation at near economic collapse and deepening of the current problems you see. Use your head and vote correctly for a change in direction.

  2. Sounds like a lot of “elite” young voters are all screwed up, or CONFUSED. Speaks to “Woke Life On Campus” !

  3. The young are being propagandized and brainwashed with leftist politics in schools across the country, not just on college campuses– my children came home to tell me what teachers said (including one teacher in first grade who outed herself to her 6 and 7 yr old students, delivering a “gay marriage” lesson plan!) and you can see the leftwing political bias from books they’re reading. If you don’t discuss politics with your children over the supper table, you’ll find that a nutty or perverted professor has put foolish ideas into their heads. If you don’t encourage your children to read classic books that will inform, as opposed to misleading them, it’s your fault as a parent. As young people mature, and enter the work force, and start paying taxes, they usually wise up. Many young people today will say they favor socialism, but only a small percentage can even define the term! If you’ve watched Jesse Watters’ hilarious but depressing interviews with the young, you know that our schools are failing to educate.

  4. In the current political atmosphere it’s very shocking that young people know so little about the government that they are living under. The “I don’t know”s and totally “just guessing” responses sure tell the truth about how well our education system is (not) working. If the populace is uninformed and doesn’t even know it, how easy it would be to sway them to voting against their own interests in order to destroy our country completely….It could happen!

  5. Let us just hope and pray that these young voters are of stable mind and not filled with this drivel about hating America like a good communist should!
