Democratic Party's strategy of relying on young voters 'now in ruins,' warns liberal columnist

Liberal New York Magazine columnist Jonathan Chait feared younger minority voters are rejecting the Democratic Party after decades of the party rallying for their vote.

In his column, “Are Young People Actually Progressive?” Chait warned, “The mistaken assumptions of Democrats have put the party in peril.”

He cited recent polls showing former President Trump dominating over President Biden among younger voters, which flies in the face of widely held beliefs that these voters have “ironclad loyalty” to the Democratic Party.

A Fox News poll from December found Trump had a 13-point lead over Biden among voters under 30. Polls from the New York Times, USA Today and others also show Biden bleeding support from Black, Hispanic and young voters who voted for him in 2020.
