Pew poll finds young Americans are 'flocking' to Republican Party

47 percent of respondents to the poll, Newsweek reports, were either Republican or leaned in that direction.

A new poll out from the Pew Research Center confirms that "young people appear to be flocking to the Republican Party." The National Public Opinion Reference Survey, published on Tuesday, confirms that for those Americans under 30, the GOP is the party of choice. This comes after decades of leftist indoctrination in schools, entertainment, and politics. 

47 percent of respondents to the poll, Newsweek reports, were either Republican or leaned in that direction, while a lesser 46 percent said that the Democrat Party was their choice. This comes from data collected from February 1 to June 10 where 5,626 American adults were questioned.

"In recent decades, neither party has had a sizable advantage, but the Democratic Party has lost the edge it maintained from 2017 to 2021," Pew said in their analysis. The analysis found that among black voters, "17% of Black voters under 50 identify as or lean Republican, compared with just 7% of Black voters 50 and older."

Chief Political Analyst of The New York Times Nate Cohn said that the poll was "important because it's used as a 'benchmark' -- its results are used as targets for weighting by other polls." He went on to say that "By subgroup, the headline is age: NPORS found the GOP ahead on leaned party ID among 18 to 29 year olds, even though the sample was Biden+20 on 2020 recall vote. The sample size is fairly large (n=496) and it hasn't shown anything like this in previous cycles."

"Uhhhhh.... one odd tidbit from the Pew NPORS: respondents under 26 that are registered to vote are almost R +30," said Harvard professor and political scientist Matt Blackwell. 

These are not the first indications that younger Americans are leaning further right, but they do come from Pew, which is widely trusted by the wokerati NPR, New York Times, New Yorker consuming contingent. In May, polls came out showing that young Americans were leaning Trump over Biden. The Washington Post and NPR tried to bring attention to this issue to rouse Democrats. 

WaPo said "Discontent among young voters might deny Democrats what they need to hold the White House and Senate." The article from Ruy Teixeira went on to say that "The ongoing demonstrations on campuses are really only the latest complicating factor in an already blurry picture of young voter support for Biden and the Democrats. Young voter discontent has been gathering throughout Biden’s term and might no longer give Democrats the margins they need to hold the White House and the Senate."

He was referencing a Gallup poll which found that "8-to-29-year-olds today (most of whom are considered Gen Z) are plurality, but not majority, Democratic" and that the "plus-8 advantage is the narrowest Democratic tilt among this age group since 2005 and continues a downward trend since 2019, when the Democratic advantage among this age group was 23 points."

The headline from NPR simply read: "Biden’s problems with younger voters are glaring, poll finds." They found at the time that "In a head-to-head matchup with Trump, Biden and Trump are in a statistical tie, with Biden narrowly ahead 50-48 percent. He leads by just 4 points with voters under 45 and by 6 with Gen Z/Millennials."

Now that Biden is showing such clear signs of decline, that number is bound to worsen for the incumbent president while young voters may see hope in Trump's plans for an American future where prosperity and security go hand in hand.
