Poll: Millennials don’t like Trump

19910613-mmmain.jpg

Millennials don’t like Donald Trump, a Harvard Institute of Politics poll released Monday shows.

Hillary Clinton crushes Trump among millennials, who would overwhelmingly support the former secretary of state over the real estate mogul in a general election. Clinton holds a 36-point advantage over Trump, 61 percent to 25 percent, with 14 percent undecided.

Support for Clinton is bolstered by 18- to 29-year-olds increasingly favoring having a Democrat in the White House. More than 60 percent of millennials surveyed said they want a Democratic president in 2016, while just 33 percent want a Republican in the White House. The gap has nearly doubled from this point last year, when just 55 percent preferred a Democrat in the White House and 40 percent wanted a Republican president.

Harvard IOP polling director John Della Volpe told reporters Monday that Trump is playing a similar role in helping the Democratic nominee as former President George W. Bush did during Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign.

“I don’t think there’s a question about that,” he said, “and there’s a lot of evidence that suggests that that’s the case.”

Though Trump is the Republican presidential front-runner, he has the lowest net favorability rating of any remaining presidential candidate among millennials, who also reject Trump’s assertion that he would be the best president for women. Trump’s favorability is minus 57 percent (17 percent favorable, 74 percent unfavorable). Clinton’s favorability is minus 16 percent (37 percent favorable, 53 percent unfavorable).

Only 16 percent of young voters identify as socialists, and just a third support socialism. Nevertheless, Bernie Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, is the only candidate with a positive net favorability: plus 23 percent (54 percent favorable, 31 percent unfavorable).

Trump supporters are also split on whether they’re enthusiastic about backing the New York billionaire. Fifty-one percent said they were enthusiastic, while 49 percent said they weren’t. In contrast, 60 percent of Clinton’s young backers said they were enthusiastic.

Millennials point to Clinton (29 percent) and Sanders (25 percent) as the top candidates who would improve women’s lives. Ted Cruz, Trump and John Kasich are all in single digits, though nearly one-third don’t know who would do the most for women.

Clinton could become America’s first female president, but 74 percent of young voters are optimistic that they will live to see a female president even if Clinton doesn’t win in November.

The poll was conducted with the government and academic research team of GfK between March 18 and April 3. It surveyed 3,183 18- to 29-year-olds in English and Spanish and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.4 percentage points.

Is HILLARY quite safe now for the Democratic nomination?

It's as safe as putting on 10 condoms, being on prep and getting a bj by a virgin.

So much for his promise to GOP higher ups that he would start appearing more "Presidential" from now on at this point in the game.

This ego maniac just cant help himself.

And yes as someone who supported Bernie from the start I am all but over the Hillary bashing from other Bernie supporters. Time to join together.

Sanders will need 107% of the remaining delegates to win after Hillary won Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Connecticut.

Ok but super delegates can switch

They certainly did in 2008!

Theoretically they could switch, though based on her Now having an insurmountable pledge delegate lead and a 3 million popular vote lead, if super delegates are going to switch at this point they'd be switching to her. It's also likely that she'll get to 2383 on pledge delegates alone without needing super delegates.

yeah, but Clinton was losing in 2008 + she asked them to vote Obama at the convention. She's winning now.

I'm very aware she's winning now. I think the superdelegate system is total shit. I thought it in 2008, and I think the same way now.

She's winning either way. I just don't think we should have a system where the people don't decide the outcome FULLY.

The nominating process for both the Democrats and the Republicans is corrupt.

Not really, superdelegates have never gone against the people's choice. They're a safety net.

Even if the delegate process is wonky and shitty she has still has 3 million more actual votes than he does. You can't rig that - more people turn up and vote for Hillary than Bernie. People need to get the fuck over it.

Wether this election is over for Bernie or not I think he should stick till the end. This is not just about this election it's about the movement.

At this point I have to even wonder about Sanders "movement".

Yes he has gotten a lot of young people involved in the process, and yes I am glad he has gotten his message out there and has forced Clinton to the left on many issues, but WHERE is this revolution of tens and of millions of people he has been talking about, because they sure as hell are not showing up to the polls.

It makes me wonder if a lot of young people are jumping up and down loving him, but when it comes time to actually vote they are sitting out.

By and large I do think it is time for Bernie to graciously step down. Claim victory in that he got his message out there and yes he did WAY better then anyone would have expected him to do, and now work closely with Clinton to A. Make sure she sticks to her more left of center positions on certain things, and B. Urge the hell out of his supporters that did vote for him to come out for Clinton in November and hammer it home on what an EPIC disaster a President Trump would be.

In all honesty is it safe to say that if Trump wins that America has officially jumped the shark and has lost ALL credibility as a country? I feel like that will forever be the end of our "experiment" in American democracy. What a joke we would be to the rest of the world.

There is no movement. By all means though, keep sending him those checks while asking how you're going to pay off your student loans.

Let's see. The Republican party is deteriorating. The Democratic party is losing credibility. Of course Hillary will do better against the person who's against the big guys. She has that support. There will be a shift and eventually the downfall of the '2 party system'.

I am glad that he will continue till the end because it's about the movement and not him.

I used to love The Young Turks on youtube but their Hillary bashing is getting sooooooooooooooo tired at this point.

They have no clue how much damage they could be doing. They go on and on about how Trump will be the worst President this country has ever seen, but then they bash the living shit out of the only person who will be going up against him. In fact I swear they do more bashing of Hillary then they do Trump.

Now I consider myself a pretty liberal minded person, but for whatever reason I don't cringe when I think about Hillary being President on any level. In fact a welcome it. Maybe I am just too in tune with reality to know that the alternative is a living nightmare.

it would be suspicious if they switch seeing that Hillary has a big popular vote lead...
