Media Lies about the Politics of Millennials

Millennials often catch a lot of flack in conservative media, and in many cases rightfully so. Some of the most far-left individuals in America – the ones calling for an end to capitalism, the ones fighting for the censorship of conservative ideas and speakers, and the ones promoting radical changes to American culture – are college educated millennials.

However, new data suggests that the popularity of liberalism among millennials – like so many other things – may be overblown by a liberal media that enjoys promoting the idea that the entire younger generation is rallied behind their cause.

According to a recent poll of 16,000 registered voters, Democratic support among voters ages 18-34 has fallen to just 46%. This number is down a total of 9% from what it was when the poll was conducted two years ago.

It’s important to note, however, that the decline in Democratic support among millennials does necessarily signal an increase in Republican support. 28% of voters age 18-34 said that they supported the Republican Party, which is the same number that it was two years ago.

Reuters, the company conducting the poll, noted that, “A growing share of voters between ages 18 and 34 years old said they were undecided, would support a third-party candidate or not vote at all.”

In many ways, the ideals that tend to define the millennial generation are not fully in-line with the ideals of either major party. As a whole, millennials have a preference towards individual freedom. While this does put them in line with conservative ideals on many issues, it also puts them in line with liberal and libertarian ideals when it comes to issues such as marijuana legalization, gay marriage, and abortion.

The millennial generation also tends to be very sympathetic toward the needs of others. When taught that the Republican Party is cold and uncaring toward the poor and oppressed – however untruthful that might be – it becomes natural for them to gravitate toward liberal ideals.

One important takeaway from the Reuters poll, though, is that the political leanings of millennials are changing. Much of that change likely stems from changes within the Democratic and Republican parties themselves, however, it could also be attributed to changes in thinking as millennials grow older. The ideas and priorities of youth rarely survive into adulthood fully intact regardless of the generation in question. It remains very likely that the millennial generation will be no different in this regard.

Reuters reported that millennials “increasingly say the Republican Party is a better steward of the economy.” As millennials grow older, economic concerns begin to affect them more and more on a personal level. If millennials really do see the Republican Party as a better steward of the economy, this perception could likely lead them to increasingly favor the GOP as economic issues begin to take priority in their voting behaviors.

One final takeaway from the Reuters’ poll has to do with Republican support among white millennials. In the last election year, white millennials favored Democrats over Republicans by a margin of 14%. Now, though, that advantage is entirely gone, as the most recent poll shows the two parties deadlocked at 39% among white millennials. When you look at white male millennials, the favorability for the GOP is even more dramatic. 46% of white male millennials favor Republicans compared to 37% who favor Democrats.

All of this spells bad news for the Democratic Party, who continue to argue that future voters will favor Democratic candidates by such a majority that the GOP won’t be able to survive. This is an idea promoted heavily by the liberal media, and it’s even promoted in part by the conservative media which continually highlights stories of millennials promoting far-left causes on college campuses and beyond. However, the reality of the political leanings of millennials is far less black and white.

Given the closeness of the gap between millennials who support the Democratic Party and millennials who support the Republican Party, it wouldn’t take much for the GOP to win a majority of millennial support and lay stake to the claim of being the preferred party of the younger generation. Rather than driving millennials away from conservatism with constant bashing and ridicule, perhaps its past time that we welcome them into the fold.
