Throughout the entire history of American electoral politics, there exists a few constant variables that seemingly never change — until now.
Young voters aged 18-29 tend to vote liberal. This is a fact of American democracy, one that hasn’t changed until the Biden-Harris administration proved themselves to be total and complete failures for American both young an old.
This is an age where young men and women find themselves inundated with new ideas in universities, where 9/10 professors identify as leftists.
However, Joe Biden and the Democrats can no longer rely on this demographic as their ineptitudes have totally usurped ubiquity in today’s democracy.
According to a poll released this week by Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics, young Americans appear to be abandoning President Joe Biden.
Biden entered office with a 59% approval rating among 18-29-year-olds but that has now dropped 13 points to just 46%, according to the poll.
The fall mirrors Biden’s performance in his general approval rating, which has fallen steadily since early summer due largely to his handling of illegal immigration, the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan and the resurgence of COVID-19.
The poll was conducted among 2,109 18- to 29-year-olds from Oct. 26 to Nov. 8. The margin of error was 3.08 points.
Biden’s falling support among young Americans is particularly noteworthy due to how dominant Democrats typically are in the demographic. The IOP poll shows Biden dropped 10 points among young Democrats and 14 points among Independents.
Large numbers of respondents also expressed pessimism regarding the state of the U.S., with 45% of Democratic respondents saying the U.S. is either a “democracy in trouble” or a “failed democracy.” More than 50% percent of Independents and 70% of Republicans said the same, according to the poll.
Biden’s approval rating among the general public has plummeted from 54% upon entering office to 36.3% , according to a poll from the Trafalgar Group and Convention of States.

With these numbers, it’s incredibly unlikely that Democrats will experience anything but devastation come ’22 and ’24 as a massive Red Wave seems as promising as ever.
