Zogby: Trump Leading Among Millennials 3-1

Zogby: Trump Leading Among Millennials 3-1

Donald Trump is holding his lead for the GOP nomination, including by 3-1 among millennials, but younger voters may start turning away from the real estate mogul as the election progresses, according to pollster John Zogby.

"Millennials prefer problem-solvers and cutting to the chase," acording to Zogby Analytics.  "And like all Americans they do not hate billionaires."

However, he continued, "young people want solutions and consensus, too. This is a group that favors teamwork over individual braggadocio, achievement over bombast, and getting a job done without yelling. This all suggests that Mr. Trump will also fade into the woodwork, at least among younger voters."

According to Zogby's latest poll of 250 millennial voters, ages 18-34, Trump leads with 25 percent support, followed by:
  • Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, 9 percent;
  • Retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson and Texas Sen.Ted Cruz, 8 percent;
  • Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, 7 percent;
  • Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 5 percent;
  • 18 percent, undecided.

Among young men:
  • Trump leads Bush 28 percent to 13 percent;
  • Rubio, 7 percent;
  • Cruz, 9 percent;
  • Walker, 8 percent;
  • Rubio, 7 percent;
  • Carson, 6 percent.

And among young women:
  • Trump has 22 percent to 11 percent for Carson;
  • 8 percent for Cruz;
  • Walker and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, 6 percent.
Eleven percent of men and 25 percent of women in the survey said they remain undecided.

"This is a relatively small sample but it bears some analysis," said Zogby, as Trump has captured widespread attention over the summer, including on new and social media.

"Young people generally do not pay attention to presidential politics this early so it is not surprising that he has filled in a gap in that respect as well," he wrote. However, the question remains about whether the other candidates can generate interest for millennials, said Zogby.
