REPUBLICAN MILLENNIALS ARE FLEEING THE GOP

A quarter of Millennials that had self-identified as Republicans now consider themselves to be leaning in the Democratic direction according to a newly released poll study by Pew Research.

“The researchers found that only about half of surveyed Republicans under 30 stayed steadfastly loyal to their party from 2015 on: 21% left the party but returned by March 2017, and 23% defected to the Democrats. That was significantly higher than the number of young Democrats who defected to the Republican side (9%)”

As Time Magazine notes, this defection in younger supporters is likely due to his policies (or lack thereof) of the administration of President Donald Trump. Of those who left the Republican party and joined the Democratic party, 57% blamed the President for their exit.
