Blue Wave in 2018? Not among Mlllenials

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-u...-idUSKBN1I10YH

The online survey of more than 16,000 registered voters ages 18 to 34 shows their support for Democrats over Republicans for Congress slipped by about 9 percentage points over the past two years, to 46 percent overall. And they increasingly say the Republican Party is a better steward of the economy.

Although nearly 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.

That presents a potential problem for Democrats who have come to count on millennials as a core constituency - and will need all the loyalty they can get to achieve a net gain of 23 seats to capture control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November.

I thought you didn't believe polls and surveys.

Oh, and also from the article, which gives lie to some other "polling" out there:

“It sounds strange to me to say this about the Republicans, but they’re helping with even the small things,” Hood said in a phone interview. “They’re taking less taxes out of my paycheck. I notice that.”

Consider this post "outreach". I'm trying to speak in a language you'll understand.

Not good news for the Dems.

The blue wave?

Additionally: Caravan shenanigans on the border with the tacit DEm support.
Peace breaking out in Korea.
Weariness with the Russian investigation.

The issue in the midterms will be turnout, just as it was in Alabama and Pennsylvania special elections in heavily conservative areas. It appears that your Dear Dotard energizes young Democrats. Young Republicans? Not so much.

My son and daughter in law were conservatives but the Trump presidency has made them reconsider.
