Millennial poll: Trump has stronger convictions than Dems & GOP

Associated Press

Mainstream media might think President Trump just had one of his roughest weeks in office yet, however, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

According to a new Quinnipiac University poll, more millennials aged 18 to 34 (35 percent) believe that Donald Trump bases his policies on a set of core values than Republicans (18 percent) and Democrats (22 percent). Comparatively, 59 percent of millennials believe that Trump does whatever is politically convenient. 79 percent of millennials believe that Republicans do whatever is politically convenient, while 76 percent believe the same of Democrats.

While Trump has the lowest approval rating among millennials in his handling of the economy (38 percent), a majority of them (52 percent) believe that the state of the economy is “good” to “excellent.” In fact, 34 percent of millennials think the economy is getting better, 40 percent say it’s about the same, and 22 percent think it’s getting worse. However, a whopping seven in ten millennials think that their personal financial situation is “good” (61 percent) to “excellent” (9 percent). Yet, those numbers are still lower than from those surveyed in older generations.

Despite being in office for almost seven months, more millennials (53 percent) believe that former President Barack Obama is more responsible for the current state of the economy than Trump (34 percent).
