Poll: Ben Carson Most Popular With Young GOP Voters

By    |   Wednesday, 29 Apr 2015 09:25 PM

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson beat out all other Republicans among GOP voters ages 18-29 in a survey released Wednesday by Harvard University’s Institute of Politics.

Carson was the favorite of 10 percent of young Republican primary voters, The Washington Times reported. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul came in second at 8 percent.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee each polled 7 percent, while Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin each received 5 percent.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie came in at 4 percent.

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania each received 3 percent, while Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina each polled 2 percent.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and former New York Gov. George Pataki tied at 1 percent.

Despite Paul's second-place showing, polling director John Della Volpe told Bloomberg he might actually have the best chance with young voters because he has discussed cellphone privacy and raised his social media profile.

On the other side of the aisle, Democrat Hillary Clinton fared better than all Republicans, with 55 percent of millennials saying they want the former secretary of state to occupy the Oval Office.

Though the 67-year-old is likely to be the oldest candidate of either party, she still is a favorite among younger voters, Bloomberg noted.
