Harvard poll: Clinton winning millennials by massive margins


Despite the corporate media narrative that Hillary Clinton has an enthusiasm problem with young voters, she is dramatically outperforming President Obama's 2012 numbers with people under 30 — especially women.

For most of the 2016 election cycle, the national media have painted young voters as cynical, dissatisfied with both choices, and unable to find inspiration in Hillary Clinton — a narrative they have perpetuated by not giving airtime to Clinton's actual supporters.

But a new poll from the Harvard Institute of Politics shatters this myth.

The poll finds Clinton leading Trump in a four-way race by +28 points among people under 30. By contrast, President Obama led millennials by just +15 points over Mitt Romney in 2012.

The numbers are even more astounding for young women: Clinton leads this group by +37 points, which is nearly twice the amount Obama led them in 2012.


It is small wonder that the Trump campaign's only strategy in the final stretch of the race is a scheme to stop young women from voting. The opportunity to put the first woman in the Oval Office has galvanized millennial women voters in a way that nothing else has.
