A Harvard Poll released on October 29 shows that millennials are done with Obama and want Republicans to control Congress.
Released by the Harvard Institute of Politics, the poll shows that 18 to 29-year-olds who say they will “definitetly be voting” next week plan to support Republicans by a margin of 51 to 47 percent.
In September 2010–just two months before the Republican landslides in those midterm elections–Republicans only had “43 percent” support among millennials.
Regarding Obama, only “43 percent” of millennials in general approve of the job he’s done–“53 percent” disapprove. But when approval/disapproval questions are asked to millennials who will “definitely be voting” next week, Obama’s approval slips down to “42 percent” and his disapproval jumps to “56 percent.”
One of the biggest concerns for millennials is terrorism against the US. “61 percent” of millennials said they are “a great deal” or “somewhat” concerned with the prospect of another attack against the US. They also support the plan to “expand the US air campaign against ISIS” by a margin of “39 percent” to “20 percent.”
