Young voters powered right's gains in Europe; will they do so is US? | Eastern North Carolina Now

Tump is rising in polls of young voters and minorities


For many decades, young voters have trended left.  Nearly a century ago, Sir Winston Churchill remarked that "if you are not a liberal at 20, you have no heart, but if you are not a conservative at 40, you have no brain."  That, however, has changed dramatically in European elections, and polls are showing the beginning signs of it happening in the US as well.

Polling of young voters for the past few years in Germany has shown the populist right Alternativ fur Deutschland as the most popular party with young voters, and the traditional conservative  CDU/CSU second. The parties of the left, the Social Democrats, Green Party, and Left Party are way down the list.  The same is true next door in France, where the populist right National Rally is the most popular party with young voters, followed by the traditional conservative Les Republicains.  Young voters also powered the right's recent landslide in Dutch national elections.

Now, polls in the US are showing significanat movement of young voters away from Biden and the Democrats and to Trump and the Republicans.  It is not yet to the extent as it is in Europe, but the wave is still building.

Concern about illegal immigration is cited as a major issue of Europe's young people turning right, and that may be part of the equation in the US.  However, the dire prospects for young people in the rotten Biden economy is probably a bigger factor.

The challenge with young voters in the US is overcoming the "woke" political indoctrination kids get in the public schools and colleges. That is why voters all over the country are throwing out the education establishment which has allowed this from their school boards and replacing them with conservatives who will put a stop to it.

Beaufort County has that challenge in November as establishment hack "dead wood" incumbents T. W. Allen, Mack Hodges, and Eltha Booth need to be replaced
