Young Voters Choose Trump Over Biden

With the approaching presidential election, President Joe Biden is seeing a decrease in support from young voters, a crucial voting bloc for Democrats. According to a recent survey, Voters under 30 are increasingly siding with former president Donald Trump.

A rematch between Biden and Trump in November is inevitable, given that their respective presidential primaries are well-positioned to win.

The president’s support from young people, who are generally progressive but have voiced their disapproval of Biden’s policies, is of great concern in Biden’s camp, mainly since he tried to buy off those votes with student debt cancellation.

Some young people have turned away from Biden because of his strong support for Israel in its fight with Hamas. They feel he hasn’t done enough to address the issues that Generation Z is worried about, such as climate change.

Despite the White House’s claims regarding Biden’s fitness for office, his age—81—has become a major campaign issue. Some have questioned Trump’s age (he’s 77 years old) and whether or not youthful people with more progressive attitudes are in line with his conservative beliefs.

A Fox News survey published on Sunday showed that Trump was ahead of Biden among young voters.

The survey found that just 45% of people under 30 intend to vote for Biden in November, while 51% intend to vote for Trump. Although Biden did well among young voters in 2020, this year’s results show a clear shift. There was a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points in the survey of 1,262 registered voters conducted from February 25 to 28.

Similar results have been observed in other surveys. According to a new Harvard CAPS/Harris poll, the majority of Generation Z voters believe that Trump will implement favorable changes to the nation. A recent poll by Siena College and The New York Times found that 10% of 2020 Biden voters plan to support Trump in the next election.

According to the most recent Fox News survey, support for Joe Biden among Black and Hispanic voters has declined.
