Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, April 30, 2018

Enthusiasm for the Democratic Party is waning among millennials as its candidates head into the crucial midterm congressional elections, according to the Reuters/Ipsos national opinion poll.

The online survey of more than 16,000 registered voters ages 18 to 34 shows their support for Democrats over Republicans for Congress slipped by about 9 percentage points over the past two years, to 46 percent overall. And they increasingly say the Republican Party is a better steward of the economy.

Young voters represent an opportunity and a risk for both parties, said Donald Green, a political science professor at Columbia University in New York City. "They're not as wedded to one party," Green said. "They're easier to convince than, say, your 50- or 60-year-olds who don't really change their minds very often."

Terry Hood, 34, an African-American who works at a Dollar General store in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and took this year's poll, said he voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

But he will consider a Republican for Congress because he believes the party is making it easier to find jobs and he applauds the recent Republican-led tax cut.

"It sounds strange to me to say this about the Republicans, but they're helping with even the small things," Hood said in a phone interview. "They're taking less taxes out of my paycheck. I notice that."

The Republicans cannot exist without the Democrat enablers. Both parties are a symbiotic parasite.

The voting app will end them much sooner.

Also, it's ironic Reuters own video is made unavailable to their own article.

Russia's prevalent on line influence is the dastardly reason behind this!

The hate on the left is catching up with them.

Hate is not a policy. Hate does not help anyone.

You hate Hillary, that's why you voted for Trump, remember?

For the Presidency, yes, not for the Democrats losing millennials.

Russian propaganda targeted almost exclusively the Right wing, and their phrases are repeated the most by Fox. So, people who are most afflicted with Russian propaganda are those who mainly watch Fox.

Russians also hacked the DNC server and shared that data with Wikileaks. This includes data that confirms Sanders was pushed out deliberately and Hillary promoted.

Russia is clarifying what we've known for quite a while - the two party system is not sufficient. The two parties are power-mad, not interested in advancing our society or factual prosperity. The world is suffering military presence on behalf of corporations for resource domination.

All that comprehension without a sole news source, or even real world involvement in a crippled economy.

You mean the right's propensity for being selfish -------- has caught up with them.

It never ceases to amaze me that such collectively awful people can be so surprised when people don't want anything to do with them.

the crucial midterm congressional elections

Millenials don't vote anyway. And Democrats suck at mid-terms all the time.
