Young voters are a key demographic necessary for a Democrat to win a presidential election. Democrat presidential candidates carefully cater to young voters every 4 years in the United States to try to boost their support and turnout. Typically the age group for young voters is 18 to 29 years old. Other age groupings are 30-44, 35-64, and 65 and above years old.
Alarm bells are being sounded in August 2023 about the weakening of support by young voters of Democrats. In "Democrats worry young people souring on party," Harvard experts explain a shift in young voters away from Dems, which could make it unlikely that Dems retain the White House. TheHill article continued:
|“||In 2019, 39 percent of respondents in the Harvard Youth Poll reported identifying as Democrat — and the figure fell slightly to 35 percent this spring. The share of youth voters identifying as independents or “unaffiliated with a major party,” on the other hand, climbed from 36 percent in 2019 to 40 percent this year. The share of youth voters identifying as Republican saw a statistically insignificant shift from 23 percent to 24 percent.||”|
There has been an increase in turnout by young voters or at least by ballot harvesting and Dropbox Dems casting ballots in their names. It seems likely that many young voters feel intimidated by the political correctness that could put their jobs at risk if they do not go along with the liberal demands.
