Don’t Look Now, But Millennials Are Moving Right – Watch

Democrats are facing a new problem in their efforts to retain power in 2024: millennials are moving to the right.

New York Times and Siena College polls showed that voters aged 34-43 supported Democrat congressional candidates by just 10 percent in 2022. Another study, from Cornell University’s Roper Center showed that voters studied under the age of 50, tended to vote more for Republican candidates in 2020 than in 2012.

The voters who came of age politically in the era of Barack Obama, “hope and change,” and “yes we can,” don’t seem to be aligning with those vague slogans anymore, and seem to have figured out what Obama meant by “fundamentally transforming America.”

Many of these older millennials are parents, and the issues from their younger days have morphed into concerns about what their kids are being taught in school, CRT and transgenderism, and American entanglements in places like Ukraine. It is the younger portion of millennials where any shift to the right is less apparent.

There are a number of factors that may be contributing to millennials’ move to the right. One factor is the rising cost of living. Millennials are facing a number of challenges, including student loan debt, high housing costs, and stagnant wages. These challenges may be leading millennials to question the effectiveness of government programs and policies.

Another factor is the increasing polarization of American politics. Millennials are more likely to be exposed to conservative viewpoints through social media and other online platforms. This exposure may be leading millennials to question their own liberal beliefs.

The study’s findings suggest that the move of millennials to the right is not a monolithic trend. Rather, it is a complex phenomenon that is likely due to a variety of factors. It is important to remember that millennials are a diverse group with a wide range of political views.
