Poll: Young Adults Turning Bluer

Young adults have typically identified with the Democratic Party, but those ties have become stronger since 2006. The Gallup Poll finds that 54% of 18-to-29-year-olds on average since 2006 have aligned themselves with Democrats compared with 36% who identify with the Republican Party. From 1993-2003, the gap among young adults wasn’t as wide.  Gallup’s analysis of its polls taken over the years finds that 47% of 18-to-29-year-olds, on average, identified with Democrats compared with 42% for Republicans/USA Today On Politics.

Question: Does this political demographic concern you?
