You can call them whiny and self-important. You can say that they’re addicted to their cellphones. But according to a new poll, you would also have to say that they’re on board the Trump Train.
According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll, millennials — the generation everyone loves to hate — now only support Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump by a margin of 45 to 42 percent.
If that doesn’t sound good, consider this — back in March, from the same poll, they backed Clinton by an incredible margin of 64 to 25 percent in a hypothetical Hillary-Trump matchup. That’s a massive 36 point poll swing!
As a whole, the poll showed Donald Trump up by a margin of 46 to 44 percent. Taken between May 16-19, the poll had a margin of error of 3.5 points.
In fact, the only demographic where Hillary made any gains was in the 65+ demographic, where her numbers were up by one point. Unfortunately for her, Trump’s numbers were up by five points.
While the media credited this to attack ads, Rush Limbaugh said on his Tuesday show that Trump was just doing what the media refused to do — properly hold Hillary and Bill Clinton accountable for their past actions.
“As far as the millennials are concerned, Donald Trump is running negative ads about Hillary — or is Donald Trump doing the job the American media refuses to do?” Limbaugh said.
“Is Donald Trump telling people who don’t know things, things they don’t know, that the media won’t tell ’em, or is he engaged in just smears? And I think the odds are it’s gonna be seen as the opposite. I think it’s gonna be seen as Trump doing the job the American media and the Republican Party won’t do.
“Look, folks, I predicted long ago that millennials would be appalled to learn about the Clintons’ past. To me, that’s a no brainer. Especially women millennials and how Trump is reaching out to them, educating them.”
The very oldest millennials, who were born in 1982, were only just coming of voting age when former President Bill Clinton was leaving office. They may have heard of Monica Lewinsky or Ken Starr, but most probably don’t know the full story of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s manifold scandals from their White House years and even earlier.
And as they hear more about them, it seems like those “whiny” millennials may not be so whiny after all. Way to go, Donald!
