Shocking Harvard poll: Millennial voters want GOP in charge, abandon Obama

Harvard University on Wednesday provided new proof that the Democrats are going to be broadsided in Tuesday’s national elections as millennial voters, in a shocking shift, now prefer a Republican-controlled Congress and give President Obama his second lowest grade ever.

A new and massive poll of 2,029 18- to 29-year-olds from Harvard’s Institute of Politics just released found that of those who say they will “definitely be voting,” 51 percent want the GOP in charge, 47 percent favoring Democratic control.

The unexpected anti-Democratic swing prompted a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reporter quizzing poll experts on a media conference call to IOP blurted out, “How did the Democrats and Obama screw this up?”

Because the numbers are close, however, Harvard said the kid vote is “up for grabs.”

Still, it is a huge shift from the last IOP midterm poll. In 2010, younger voters kept to their historic trend with 55 percent favoring Democrats, 43 percent Republicans. That is an eight-point change, very good news for the Republicans who had feared that the Obama generation would show up at the polls and in knee-jerk fashion simply pull the Democratic levers.

    I have been waiting so long for the other side to wake you and see the real Dems. The Dems are so good at brainwashing the otherside and not telling the whole truth. We all have watched these last 6yrs just how device they are. constantly blaming bush or the Rep. if something didn’t go their way. They don’t know how to tell the truth. Watching Pelosi is funny as hell.

    One result of all this frenzy of good news about how the Republicans will do in the election is that, if by any chance they don’t do as well as all this reporting makes it sounds like, it will give the righties all the more reason to charge that the election was stolen. You just wait and see.

      Because bo made certain that States could NOT require a pic ID – I’ve already figured out there has been cheating…………….

      In 2012, bo LOST in every state that Required a pic ID. – so no wonder he didn’t want Voters to have to show their ID.

      And by the way – There are a huge # of Democrats and Republicans that want to SAVE AMERICA & get the Senate out of control of the Demos.

      1. I Seigel says:

        I think there are also a huge number of Democrats who want to SAVE AMERICA and get the House out of the control of the Republicans. They’re going to be disappointed this time, however.

        1. JCLUVU22 says:

          Congress has not been in Control of ANYTHING in Congress. And American Citizens are tired of obama & his demo-senate for all their spending and ‘controlling’ America. We want to stop all their spending. We want to Control our borders. We want to Stop obama’s plan to give Amnesty to illegals. And we want to Stop his government from planning to give work permits to illegals & green cars to illegals & overseas immigrants

          1. I Seigel says:

            What is “all their spending”? What “controlling” America? There’s been LOTS of spending by Republicans – on subsidies to farmers to NOT grow stuff, to oil companies already pumping more oil than Saudi Arabia. So what “spending” are you talking about?
            What does “control our borders” mean? You mean close them?
            What “plan” to give work permits to illegals? Are you talking about the conspiracy stories that have been posted here and on other conservative websites? Any corroboration from the MSM yet?
            You’re spewing lots of boilerplate Rush rants; how about some actual details?

      What is new? The Demoncrats are experts when it comes to stealing elections by any means, even voters who are in the graveyards or ballot machines that are rigged to show a vote for the Demos when the voter had voted for the Republicans. The Democrats are the biggest scam to ever affect politics in such a totally criminal manner! Indeed they have been known to use strongarm methods as well!

      1. I Seigel says:

        Too bad all those cheating efforts weren’t enough to hold onto the House in the 2010 midterms. And prevent all those Republicans from getting elected to governorships and Congress in 2014. With all that cheating and those strong arm methods, you’d think those scam Dems would have control over a lot more than they do. They must be really incompetent cheaters.
        Then again, you may be full of S**T.

        Libertyship-spot on in your assessment ~ be aware that when Seigel starts losing the argument he will attack the messenger. That is his modus operandi in a feeble attempt to defend the indefensible. The fact that the American people are beginning to realize they have been ,and continue to be, lied to is more than he can bear. Just stay cool and he will soon be would up like an eight day clock. Good Luck America !!!
