AOC is the future of the Democratic party, she will have you know. She flaunts her connection the millennial vote and acts, in her own mind as a demographic kingmaker.
She scorns her elders in the Democratic party, ask Joe Biden about that, with mockery and hints their days are numbered.
She takes no prisoners and the media, of course, ate it all up and a legend was born. She promised the youth vote and the minority vote was all locked up against Trump and everyone assumed it was a done deal. But what if it is not true?
What if millennials are lining up behind Trump in record numbers because of the booming economy, joining minorities to create a new coalition that will keep Trump in power for one more term?
According to multiple new polls that is exactly what is happening. From The Washington Examiner:
President Trump has crossed the critical 50% approval line needed to win reelection as millennials and independents are moving to embrace him, according to a new survey.
The latest Zogby Poll put Trump’s approval rating at 51%, his highest ever in the trademarked survey.
Zogby Analytics pollster Jonathan Zogby said that the president is riding a booming economy and could be hard to beat should the nation’s economic health continue to improve.
And, importantly, Trump’s approval rating topped that of former President Barack Obama this far into his first term.
“President Trump’s job approval rating has seen a post Mueller report boost. We called it a few weeks ago. But that’s not the complete story as to why the president has reached a peak in his job approval rating. Trump is also riding high on positive economic news-a record high stock market, low unemployment, and solid GDP growth at home. At the moment President Trump’s approval rating is higher than Obama’s at the same point in his presidency. Zogby Analytics had President Obama at 48% approve/52% disapprove on 05/09/2011,” said the pollster’s analysis provided to Secrets in advance of its release.
There were two intriguing findings in the survey. On the positive side, the poll found that 22% of Democrats approved of Trump, a surprise. But it also found that 59% of elderly voters disapproved of Trump, 59% to 41%.
Zogby’s analysis provided the following takeaways:
“President Trump’s job approval rating is the highest we have on record. A slim majority strongly and somewhat approve of his job performance as president.
His numbers are being driven by decent job growth, an inflated stock market, solid GDP figures, and low unemployment, but there are potential foreign policy threats like Iran, North Korea and a trade war with China, which could derail his current popularity with voters.”
“Besides a good economy and vindication from the Mueller report, Trump’s good approval rating is being driven by a surge in popularity among college educated voters, voters living in the Western region, Independents, Millennials, suburban men, urban men, and middle aged voters.
Trump’s approval rating has improved with minorities — 27% of African Americans and 45% of Hispanics approve of the president-both very good numbers historically for Trump.”
“According to recent job statistics, most job growth in the U.S. has occurred in large to medium size cities, which could also explain the good job performance rating Trump received from large and medium city voters.
Trump has recently seen a spike in support among large and medium city voters-almost half of each group approves of his job as president and think the U.S. economy will be positive the next four years.”
