With early voting the new “thing” in elections, Democrats were hoping to drive younger voters to the polls to make a difference.
That, however, is not happening.
When you promise these kids the world and you don’t produce, they lose interest, and that is what Democrats are seeing right now.
Democrats own the Under 30 Demographic, and it is not even close.
The national poll average had the Democrats at a 57-31 edge in this demographic.
If that group turned out for the election, Democrats could have held serve against Republicans in the Senate.
So far, that group is not turning out for early voting, and they traditionally have had weak turnout on election day.
TargetSmart CEO Tom Bonier stated, “Democrats are going to need younger voters to come out on Election Day in order for the numbers to hold.”
As noted, that is not happening, not even close.
By this stage of early voting in 2020, the under-30 demo accounted for 16.5 percent of the vote.
This year, they only account for 6.4 percent of the vote.
This weekend could make a difference, as many eligible young voters live away from home during the voting cycle (college students).
We will look for an update on Monday to see if there has been any overall change to these numbers.
