Republicans have a serious problem when it comes to engaging with voters who aren’t already part of their base — and that’s a truth that extends to Latinos, young voters, and others. Today Fusion published their first-ever Massive Millennial Poll, which surveyed 1200 likely voters ages 18-34, with a number of questions on immigration.
One of the key toplines found that nearly half of all millennial voters align with the Democratic Party on immigration, compared to 30% who align with Republicans.
Young Hispanic voters, however, are more likely than their white or black counterparts to blame congressional Republicans for Congress’ failure to pass immigration reform. (Not that all groups blame Republicans significantly more than any other option.)
Overall, most young voters appear to sympathize with the plight of unaccompanied Central American children and think they should be protected.
What does all of this mean? If Republicans are going to keep running these kinds of ads in elections, they’re sure to alienate future as well as current voters.
