Young Voters Not Excited About Joe Biden

The Democratic front-runner has been slow to embrace the bloc. And the feeling is mutual. ...


"We are looking forward to working with you," [Symone] Sanders said. "You all are going to be the ones who are really going to get this thing done."

She left them with this piece of advice: "Y'all are powerful. If you go to the ballot box, things will change. There is not a more powerful voting bloc."

This is true generally of voters younger than the baby boomers: Voters age 18 to 53, including Gen Z, millennials and Gen X, cast more votes than baby boomers and other older generations during the 2018 midterm election, according to the Pew Research Center, 62.2 million votes to 60.1 million votes. The turnout marked the second election in a row in which younger voters eclipsed older voters. The majority of Gen Z and young millennial voters, including the nearly 24 million students who are either expected to attend college in fall 2019 or expected to graduate from high school during the 2019-20 school year, tend to vote Democratic, and candidates have strategically tapped into their energy, influence and organizing power to propel their campaigns.

As it stands, the majority of young Democratic voters are flocking to Sanders and Warren early in the primary, and taking good looks at Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke. Many Democratic strategists and pollsters say, however, that Biden's lackluster support likely won't be a problem because young voters turn out in low numbers for the primary, a process awash with voters over 50. If that holds true in 2020, they say, the vice president's nomination may be all but secured barring a major disqualifying gaffe.

But some of those same strategists warn that not making a good-faith effort to engage with young voters on issues they care about during the primary under the assumption that they will ultimately support whoever the Democratic nominee is creates enormous risk for the general election.

Turnout Among College Students Doubled for Midterms

Washington Post: “College students across the United States more than doubled their rate of voting between the 2014 and 2018 midterm elections, according to a study published Thursday by Tufts University — a dramatic spike in political engagement that could draw unprecedented attention to these voters in next year’s presidential election.”

“The study found that 40% of students who are eligible to vote cast ballots last year, up from 19% in 2014.”

Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren And Andrew Yang Gain Most Under-35 Support In NBC/’WSJ’ Poll

A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Tuesday via DocumentCloud reveals that Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Andrew Yang received the most support from voters under 35-years-old. In particular, Sanders received 33 percent support, Warren received 25 percent, and Yang received 11 percent. On the lower end are Joe Biden with 10 percent support, Kamala Harris with 7 percent, and Pete Buttigieg with 5 percent.

A similar survey from Emerson College showed Sanders, Biden, and Yang drawing the most support from 18-to-29-year-olds. Sanders drew the most with 29 percent support, Biden pulled 23 percent, and Yang drew 17 percent. In addition, a recent Emerson College poll of New Hampshire revealed that Biden, Sanders, and Yang were the top three in terms of performance in hypothetical head-to-heads against Donald Trump. Biden had a 10-point lead, Yang had an eight-point advantage, and Sanders had a five-point edge over the president.

Warren shows signs of broadening her base

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) appears to be growing her share of support from black voters, who have been slow to warm to her campaign.

A new poll from NBC News and The Wall Street Journal found Warren in second place among black voters with 13 percent support, her best showing in any poll to date. That’s up from 8 percent in the previous survey from July, although the 5-point swing is within the poll’s margin of error.

An Economist–YouGov survey released Wednesday found Warren’s support among black voters at 11 percent, up from 5 percent in July. And the latest Politico–Morning Consult survey found Warren gaining 5 points among black voters.

Former Vice President Joe Biden still dominates the field with black voters, and he’ll be the favorite to win the nomination unless that changes. Biden pulled 49 percent support from black voters in the NBC-Journal poll, a 36-point lead over Warren.

But Warren is showing signs of life here after public opinion surveys from earlier in the cycle showed her languishing in the single digits among black voters, raising criticism from some quarters that her appeal was limited to wealthy white liberals on the coasts. ...

“Black voters are pragmatic, and just like anyone else they want to be with a winner,” said one South Carolina Democrat, who said Warren’s crowds at rallies in the Palmetto State are among the most diverse in the field.

BuzzFeed News: Young Black Voters In The Carolinas Say They Like What Bernie Sanders Is Saying About Racial Justice

Even if they're not committed to backing Bernie, young black voters who came to see him think Sanders has improved since 2016. "He’s one of the few that’s been open to educating himself on that."
Axios: Focus group women like Warren's policies more than her

APPLETON, Wis. — Elizabeth Warren's left-wing populism is gaining popularity among some swing voters here, but they're not ready to embrace her for 2020.

Both Biden and Warren Do Well with White Working Class

A new Democracy Corps (D) survey finds Democrats have two electable candidates at the moment — Joe Biden (leads by 8 points) and Elizabeth Warren (leads by 7), with Bernie Sanders at the edge (5 percent).

“One of the reasons both Biden and Warren are proving to be electable is the surprising result with white working class voters. While Biden has more of a working class base in the Democratic primary, the 2020 election is being shaped by bigger forces. In this combined sample of white working class women (643 respondents), Biden loses by 9 points (50 to 41 percent) and Warren by 10 (51 to 41 percent). Both are gains on 2018 and a dramatic shift from 2016. That means the 13-point shift to the Democrats in the off-year has continued another 4 points now.”

“They both lose to Trump among white working class men (combined sample of 562) by a much bigger margin — 31 points and 33 points respectively. As daunting as that appears, the trend with men is encouraging as well. Democrats gained 14 points in 2018 and Biden would take those gains 3 points further. Warren holds the 2018 gains, as there is no evidence of working class voters going back to the 2016 Trump margins.”

Key takeaway: “Both Biden and Warren perform comparably with the white working class, and both make impressive gains with the women. That may be the unfolding story in the 2020 elections.”

Warren gets ‘dramatic shift’ in support from black voters

After struggling to win over African-Americans in the early stages of the primary season, polls show the Massachusetts senator is gaining traction with a pivotal constituency.


One element of Elizabeth Warren’s surge in the polls is likely to strike fear in her top Democratic rivals — her rising support among African-Americans.

After struggling to win over black voters in the early stages of the primary, the Massachusetts senator appears to be gaining ground with a demographic that will play a pivotal role in determining the nomination. ...

Those advances have played a role in her surging overall numbers, which have seen Warren expand her lead over the African-American candidates in the primary — Sens. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker — and even overtake Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders in some state and national polls.

“It’s certainly a dramatic shift that had to be noticed by the Biden campaign — and also Sanders, Harris and Buttigieg,” said Tim Malloy, Qunnipiac’s polling analyst. “Other [candidates] aren’t moving. And if they are, it’s in the wrong direction.”

Biden has long commanded an outsized portion of black voters, many of whom look favorably upon his service as vice president to President Barack Obama. In both the Quinnipiac and Morning Consult polls. Biden holds 40% of their support.

Warren, however, has faced doubts about her appeal to the party’s most loyal constituency. But months of outreach and targeted policy proposals appear to have made a mark.

Newsweek
College Students Favor Elizabeth Warren Over Bernie Sanders for the First Time in 7 Months

After trailing narrowly behind Senator Bernie Sanders for seven months, Senator Elizabeth Warren has become college students' number one choice for president, according to a poll released on Tuesday.

College Pulse, a data and survey analytics company, and Chegg, an education technology company, launched an "Election Tracker" in March. Since its launch, they've asked college students on a weekly basis to select the candidate they'd most like to see as the Democratic nominee for president.

Sanders was college students' top pick since polls were first released on March 26, but he fell to second place on Tuesday, being replaced by Warren as students' first choice. Of the 1,500 students that were polled, 32 percent chose Warren and 27 percent selected Sanders.

When College Pulse and Chegg first surveyed college students for the Election Tracker, Warren only had five percent support. It wasn't until the July 2 poll that she started to join Sanders in breaking away from the rest of the pack, which coincided with the same time former Vice President Joe Biden saw a sharp decline in college-aged voter support.

More bad news for the survival of the Republican Party

Republicans have made a demographic bet: By artificially inflating the white percentage of the electorate (by throwing up barriers for poor and nonwhite Americans to vote) and driving white Christian turnout sky-high with a combination of cultural resentment and xenophobia, they figure they can extend the lifespan of their increasingly rural, male, non-college-educated base. After a while, however, you run out of white evangelicals. That is precisely what is happening at an unexpectedly speedy pace.

Pew Research finds: “The religious landscape of the United States continues to change at a rapid clip. In Pew Research Center telephone surveys conducted in 2018 and 2019, 65% of American adults describe themselves as Christians when asked about their religion, down 12 percentage points over the past decade.” The ranks of the most progressive segment of the electorate, religiously unaffiliated ("atheist, agnostic or "nothing in particular’ ") have risen to 26 percent, a nine-point bump since 2009.

Among white, non-Hispanic Americans, Christian identification is down 12 points, while the population of religiously unaffiliated is up 10 points. The problem for Christian affiliation gets worse with each generation: “More than eight-in-ten members of the Silent Generation (those born between 1928 and 1945) describe themselves as Christians (84%), as do three-quarters of Baby Boomers (76%). In stark contrast, only half of Millennials (49%) describe themselves as Christians; four-in-ten are religious ‘nones,’ and one-in-ten Millennials identify with non-Christian faiths.”

Considering how reliant they are on white Christians — evangelicals in particular — Republicans are unlikely to survive outside deep-red confines when they lose 12 points in the pool of the most reliable Republican voters. Republicans have created a zero-sum game wherein the increasingly racist and radical appeals to white Christians needed to drive high turnout alienates a substantial segment of the growing nonwhite and/or unaffiliated electorate. They are doubling down on a diminishing pool of voters as they crank up fierce opposition among the fastest-growing segments (millennials, nonwhites) of the electorate. Soon, the math becomes impossible outside of highly gerrymandered congressional districts and rock-ribbed conservative states.

7 Million Teenagers Can Win Democrats the White House

After the last Democratic presidential debate, pundits were adamant that the candidates most likely to win were the centrists, particularly Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg, that they had the special quality that could soothe the fears of swing voters. I hear very little talk, however, about how a centrist candidate will activate the Democrats’ base or inspire new voters to turn out.

But that’s how the Democrats will win in 2020.

By expanding the numbers of young people, people of color, L.G.B.T.Q. folks and progressive whites who vote, progressives can take back the White House. The Democratic Party should mount a campaign with a bold set of propositions that excite progressives and not those voters for whom racial fears can be easily exploited.

Next Nov. 3, seven million young people of color will have turned 18 since the last election. These newly eligible voters are primed for political participation after having consumed a steady diet of videos of racially motivated shootings and stories about the kidnapping of immigrant children. But their interest in politics is also thanks to the activism of groups like Black Lives Matter, the Sunrise Movement and United We Dream.

This is the generation taking action on the climate crisis, living in the #MeToo era, happily and comfortably queer. This group is larger than the six million Obama 2012 to Trump 2016 voters, larger than Donald Trump’s margin of victory in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

That's not just offensive, it's dumb. Do you realize that the only "queer" in the race is one of the establishment candidates mentioned as being possibly the only ones who can win in Wisconsin? And that he's from the Midwest state of Indiana? :doh:

This Californian queer finds that you took an appropriate word use in an article and turned into an epithet, rendering it offensive.

That's my ruling, but I'll chalk it up to ignorance.

No offense intended. You certainly agree that your vote will not win Wisconsin for the Dem candidate, may it be Buttiegieg or Warren or who knows.

‘The kind of voter Trump can’t lose:’ Working-class white women drift toward Democrats

DUBUQUE, Iowa

One of the essential storylines of the 2016 presidential election was the hidden Donald Trump voter: the person who wasn’t surveyed by pollsters or comfortable telling friends or family about who they thought was best to lead the country.

Three years ago, thousands of these Americans — many working-class, residing in the middle of the country — helped deliver the most astounding electoral surprise in modern history. Now, as they review the Trump presidency a year before his re-election, some are showing signs of turning on conventional wisdom again. ...

While Heather isn’t sharing her conversion far and wide, she’s already decided “there’s no chance” she’d vote for Trump again. “Heavens no,” she said. “Trump basically turned me into a Democrat.”

The 2020 presidential campaign has been engrossed in a debate over which demographic groups Democrats should devote most of their attention to in order to reclaim the White House. African-Americans in urban areas? Rural voters who flipped from Barack Obama to Trump? Newly emerging but unreliable young people?

But the one pivotal group showing the most evident signs of splitting from the president are white working-class women, according to a review of polling data, focus groups and interviews with more than a dozen party strategists and voters like Heather.

It’s these voters — packed in eastern Iowa, central Minnesota, southwestern Wisconsin, northern Ohio and throughout Michigan — who will wield outsized influence over Trump’s 2020 fate. Republican pollster Patrick Ruffini calls these women the essential voter as it relates to the Electoral College.

US NEWS & WR
Elizabeth Warren Surges Among Young Voters

Bernie Sanders still leads the demographic, but Warren has vaulted into second place since spring. ...

The survey of 18-29-year-olds by the Harvard Kennedy School's Institute of Politics found that while Sanders is still the favorite, with 28% support, Warren has surged to a close second, with 22%. That represents an enormous leap from the spring survey, which had Warren in fifth place, with just 4% support among young voters. In the current poll, former Vice President Joe Biden garners 16%. No other candidate in the crowded field has more than single-digit support.

Sanders' strong challenge to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democratic primary was largely due to his support among young voters. An analysis that year by the Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement found that in the 21 states that held nominating contests by June 1, Sanders won more than 70% of the vote among people 18-29. In raw vote total, the self-described democratic socialist who made free college a central part of his campaign earned more votes among young people than both Clinton and then-GOP nominee Donald Trump combined.

But mirroring her rise among Democratic voters overall, Warren is quickly gaining steam among young voters, according to the IOP poll, the organization's 38th survey of the political preferences and social views of young Americans.

Townhall is rerunning Ann Coulter's column from 2017:




Yes, Virginia, Immigration Is Turning The Country Blue
Ann CoulterAnn Coulter|Posted: Nov 15, 2017 5:18 PM
The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not represent the views of Townhall.com.

Hey, Republicans! Did you enjoy Election Night last week? Get ready for a lot more nights like that as immigration turns every last corner of the country blue. When Ed Gillespie lost in Virginia, liberals crowed about how they're winning the war of ideas. The country has thoroughly, emphatically rejected Trumpism! Republicans, being idiots, played along, arguing only about whether Gillespie's problem was that he didn't embrace Trump enough or embraced him too much. Gillespie's campaign was fine. No cleverer arguments, community outreach or perfectly timed mailings would have changed the result. Contrary to The New York Times' celebratory article in last Sunday's magazine, "How the 'Resistance' Helped Democrats Dominate Virginia," it wasn't Democratic operative Kathryn Sorenson's savvy use of Facebook, Google and Eventbrites that carried the day. "The Resistance" didn't win.

What happened was: Democrats brought in new voters. In 1970, only one out of every 100 Virginians was foreign-born. By 2012, one in nine Virginians was foreign-born. The foreign-born vote overwhelmingly, by about 80 percent, for Democrats. They always have and they always will -- especially now that our immigration policies aggressively discriminate in favor of the poorest, least-educated, most unskilled people on Earth. They arrive in need of a LOT of government services. According to the Pew Research Center, 75 percent of Hispanic immigrants and 55 percent of Asian immigrants support bigger government, compared to just over 40 percent of the general public. Even third-generation Hispanics support bigger government by 58 percent.

Polls show that immigrants are far more likely to support Obamacare and affirmative action than the general public, and are far less likely to support gun rights and capitalism. It's one thing not to mention ethnic differences in crime statistics or welfare usage to avoid hurting anyone's feelings, but if the GOP continues to pretend to see no difference in how different groups vote -- while importing millions more foreigners to vote against them -- then they should get used to a lot more elections like what happened in Virginia last week. It's not as if Republicans are unaware of how demographics can affect elections. They certainly notice when they're drawing congressional boundaries. We don't see GOP congressmen saying, No, I don't mind trading that all-white town for part of a Chicago housing project. Why should I?

Currently, everyone seems to be blaming the total disappearance of the GOP in Virginia on another demographic trend: All those federal workers living in the northern part of the state. This is a fairy tale, like the one about Proposition 187 turning California blue, or the one about the "complacency of old money" turning Connecticut blue, or the one about a disorganized Republican Party turning Illinois blue. Pay no attention to the millions of Third-Worlders we've been dumping on the country! In the past 40 years, upward of 50 million culturally backward, dirt-poor immigrants arrived in America, and state after state has gone blue, but we're always told states are flipping to the Democrats for some reason -- any reason! -- other than immigration.

True, Virginia is home to 322,198 people who are either current or retired federal employees. On the other hand, there are more than 800,000 Virginians who are foreign-born -- and that's not including the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the foreign-born who arrived in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Moreover, in Virginia, "federal employee" is not as Democratic-leaning as it sounds on account of the state's numerous military bases. Virginia Beach, for example, the largest city in the state, has a higher percentage of federal employees in the workforce than the entire Washington, D.C., metro area. And yet, Virginia Beach still votes Republican in presidential elections and is represented by a Republican in Congress.
***
They were brought in to vote for the Democrats. That's the real job immigrants are doing that Americans just won't do. As Democratic consultant Patrick Reddy wrote for the Roper Center 20 years ago, the 1965 Immigration Act, bringing in "a wave of immigration from the Third World," will go down in history as "the Kennedy family's greatest gift to the Democratic Party." There isn't much time on the clock before it's lights-out for the GOP. And all Republicans can think to do is argue about how quickly to grant amnesty to so-called "Dreamers" and give the Democrats another 30 million voters.

ABC News
Pete Buttigieg's youth and optimism is winning over older Iowans


Mixed in among the hundreds, sometimes thousands, of Iowans who attend a single Pete Buttigieg rally is an important voting bloc in the state that could help the South Bend, Indiana, mayor keep his momentum and produce a solid finish next year: older voters.

Young, intellectual, honest, authentic and disciplined are all terms those voters have used to describe Buttigieg at events during his most recent bus tour through northern Iowa.

The millennial candidate is tuning the message of his campaign to a vision towards the future, building on themes, such as, unity, belonging and to "launch the era that must come" after the Donald Trump presidency.

It's something that Iowa State University political science professor Steffen Schmidt said is winning over Generation X and baby boomers.

"I think the magic to his rise is he says, you know, we don't want to get into a big fight just for the purpose of a fight. The country's deeply divided. And I don't want to just get the nomination, I don't want to just become president, but I'd like to see if we can reduce the level of divisiveness," Schmidt said. "And that's selling very well."

The ugly lie about black voters and Pete Buttigieg

As a black man and gay man, it’s time that I respond to a talking point making the rounds that African Americans are homophobic and, therefore, won’t vote for Pete Buttigieg, the openly gay and married mayor of South Bend, Ind., and a Democratic presidential candidate. If ever there was a time for some inconvenient truth, this is it. ...

African Americans have evolved on LGBTQ equality just like everyone else. According to the Pew Research Center, only 29 percent of blacks supported same-sex marriage in 2009. Ten years later, a majority (51 percent) now does. Sure, that is lower than other ethnic groups, but not significantly so. Also, citing that gap contributes to the intellectual laziness on this matter especially while ignoring other relevant data points. A recent survey from the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) has a raft of data that obliterates the blacks-riven-with-homophobia myth. When looking at the numbers below, keep in mind that 69 percent of all Americans favor laws protecting LGBTQ Americans against discrimination in jobs, public accommodations and housing.
65 percent of all African Americans “favor laws that would protect LGBT people from discrimination in jobs, public accommodations, and housing.”

65 percent of black Protestants “support laws protecting LGBT people from discrimination in housing, public accommodations, and the workplace.”

67 percent of black Protestant Democrats “support nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people.”

68 percent of black Democrats and 65 percent of black independents “support for nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people.”

73 percent of young black Americans “favor LGBT nondiscrimination protections.”

54 percent of senior black Americans (age 65 and older) “favor LGBT nondiscrimination protections.”

60 percent of black men and 69 percent of black women “favor nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people.”

Interesting WaPo on Virginia and other demo changes, GOP has no clue yet.
In Virginia, Republicans confront a fearful electoral future
By Gregory S. Schneider and Michael Scherer
November 9, 2019 at 3:28 p.m. EST

RICHMOND — As Virginia election returns rolled in Tuesday night, Republican campaign manager Daniella Propati quickly realized two things: Her candidate for the House of Delegates, GayDonna Vandergriff, would lose, and calling their opponent a “socialist” hadn’t worked.

North Richmond and the tony suburbs of Henrico County had once been a dependable backstop for the GOP, a place where statewide candidates found votes to offset Arlington and Alexandria. But the suburbs have undergone a metamorphosis in recent years — growing more socially liberal, more diverse, less interested in the red meat of the tea party and Donald Trump. “Republicans — we’ve been running campaigns in Virginia the same way for 20 years,” Propati said. “We need to come together and say, ‘What do we need to do next time?’ ”

Down ballot, the shifts in support carry implications far beyond the presidential contest. Tuesday’s results in Arizona were so jarring for Kelli Ward, the state Republican Party chair, that she took to Twitter to propose an electoral college “type system” on the state level to give rural areas disproportionate power. :shock:

“As a rural AZ resident, it is frustrating that the state’s population centers, Phoenix and Tucson, could control politics in this conservative state,” she tweeted, suggesting that the solution was finding a way around majority rule. A spokesman for the state GOP, Zach Henry, said the state has different challenges than other states. “Arizona is not Virginia,” he said. “Arizona is not Mississippi.” Leaders in other states argue that it is not the rules that have to change but the party’s approach to elections and the candidates they choose.

WaPo
Why Ayanna Pressley’s endorsement matters for Warren, who’s fighting to win black women’s votes

It is a truth increasingly acknowledged by the Democratic Party that black women make up one of the party’s most loyal voting blocks, and last week, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) picked up two endorsements — from a congressional rising star and a new group composed of black women and gender-nonconforming people — that singled her out as the candidate best positioned to represent them.

The endorsements arrived as Warren and her fellow 2020 candidates fight to win the support of black voters away from former vice president Joe Biden, who has a robust lead among these voters in the early primary state of South Carolina. At the same time, black women have organized throughout the 2020 primary cycle to push candidates to release specific plans, and to have a say in choosing their party’s nominee.

In announcing their support, Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and the newly formed group Black Womxn For cast Warren as a candidate best positioned to fight for black women and other marginalized groups.

On Wednesday, Pressley, a member of the Squad who ran on the slogan “change can’t wait,” gave the rallying cry a Warren-themed update as she announced her endorsement.

“Big structural change can’t wait,” she tweeted, creating a rhetorical link between her own personal mission and Warren’s.
