Biden's first youth grade



(WSJ)



Overview: If the youth vote had a logo, it’d be a silhouette of Bernie Sanders (mittens, and all).

  • His lead among young people melted slightly in the Spring of 2019, when Joe Biden entered the race, but by Spring of 2020, Sanders led by 31 points over the next closest Democrat - Pete Buttigieg.

  • Joe Biden had 7 percent.

Today, the picture is different. Sanders still holds a major slice of youth support, but the new leader in our Youth Presidential Index is Joe Biden.

  • Most people say: Duh, he’s President.

  • We say: Duh, indeed. But young voters have consistently backed candidates pitching progressive policy, not folks in high places.
