OnPolitics: Biden loses support among young voters

Hey OnPolitics readers! President Joe Biden is losing some support among young voters, according to a new poll, as his handling of the Israel-Hamas conflict and other issues have spurred dissatisfaction among the key voting bloc.

The Harvard Youth poll, conducted among 2,010 18-29-year-olds, found that Biden would outperform former President Donald Trump 50% to 37% among registered young voters and 56% to 37% among young voters likely to head to the ballot box on election day, your favorite OnPolitics author reported. Among all young adults below 30, those figures narrow with 45% supporting Biden and 37% for Trump. Sixteen percent of Americans remain undecided.

⬇️ Biden's support among young voters has only decreased since 2020: The president had a much higher lead at this stage during the 2020 election, according to the poll. Sixty percent of likely young voters under 30 supported Biden while only 30% supported Trump.

🔴 What are some issues young Americans are concerned about? The Israel-Hamas conflict is one issue driving young voters to the polls. The poll found that more young Americans think Israel’s actions are unjustified, rather than justified. Immigration is also top of mind for many voters. Fifty-three percent of young Americans think there is a crisis at the southern border, and 50% agree that immigrants “improve the culture” of the U.S; 45% oppose the construction of a wall on the southern border.
