Democrats Lose Ground with Millennials Amidst Approaching 2018 Midterms

President Trump speaks in Washington on Dec. 18

Donald Green, a political science professor at Columbia University in New York City, told Reuters that - believe it or not - young voters aren't "as wedded to one party".

In a phone interview with Reuters, Hood said, "It sounds odd to me to say this about the Republicans, but they're helping with even the small things", and "They're taking less taxes out of my paycheck". But unaffiliated voters are only allowed to mail in one of those ballots.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

But if Democrats aren't focusing on issues important to millennials want, what's the point?

Elizabeth Renda, who specializes in reaching young voters for the Democratic National Committee said in the report that after the bruising loss in the presidential election of 2016, the Democratic Party learned it needed to reach young voters on their turf, including on social media and at college campuses.

"There is a wave out there that I do see coming, and I think to deny that is an unwise position to take", said Rep. Tom Reed, a Republican. But should the party you choose be public information? Five special elections have been held for seats where Trump won 56 percent to 60 percent of the vote - in Kansas, Montana, South Carolina, Pennsylvania and Arizona - and in each of those races the Democrat did much better than expected, winning one and getting very close in two others.

Instead of removing Trump through a drawn out impeachment process, Jeffries said, Democrats were focused on healthcare reforms, infrastructure investment and making middle-class tax cuts permanent. "So that will mean unaffiliated voters flock to the Dem banner in 2018".

Review Announced Of Cervical Check Programme
Cervical Check is writing to doctors today to make sure they've told patients the results of the audits of their smear tests. Grainne Flannelly, Clinical Director at CervicalCheck, will remain in her position.

It also shows a growing number of young voters were undecided and would support a third party candidate or would not vote at all. "They've got money. They've got good candidates".

As part of the Secretary of State's campaign to educate unaffiliated voters about their involvement in primary elections, the office commissioned a poll, conducted in December, to gauge how many might participate and which way they lean politically.

Meanwhile, the online poll showed that almost two of three young voters polled said they do not like Republican President Donald Trump, their distaste for him does not necessarily extend to all Republicans or translate directly into votes for Democratic congressional candidates.

Venturing into millennial turf is part of the Democrat's plan.

Clinton defeated Trump by 5 percentage points (around 136,000 votes) in Colorado that year.

According to their data, this isn't just a margin-of-error outlier.

Unaffiliated voters make up the largest percentage of Colorado's electorate, with about 1.1 million active registered voters as of April 1, compared to 1.01 million Democrats and 1 million Republicans.
