There are multiple polls out there that try to signify one thing or another. Polls that signify utter defeat for Republicans, not such big defeats for Republicans, and perhaps considerable gains for Republicans. Polls that show extreme levels of enthusiasm never before seen in American politics. And as is always the case, both parties wish to gain the young people’s vote. However, one reporter from NBC News discovered something that perhaps should not come as so much of a surprise: Millennials are not all that interested in voting.
Recently, an NBC News correspondent went to the University of California-Irvine campus in Orange County, an area known for being rather conservative, and asked some students there if they were going to vote this November. Of the roughly 20 students that were gathered by a bus stop, only one of them told the MSM correspondent that they would vote. The rest either did not suggest they would vote or flat out ignored the guy. He actually had to ask the question three times before one of the students said they would vote, so that tells you the level of enthusiasm in these kids.
After that rather embarrassing spectacle, the correspondent asked a couple of students what they cared about. Their answer should really not come as a surprise to anyone: “school.”
Who knew college students cared mostly about school?
Getting back on track, the correspondent asked the same kids what would be the topic that would ultimately garner their vote. Their answer was not very different. Their biggest concern was how much school cost, which is a problem we can all understand.
Might I offer a suggestion for lowering school tuition? How about colleges stop paying exorbitant amounts of money to people pretending to be a different race in order to meet a racial diversity quota only to have those people teach a class every once in a blue moon? *ahem* Elizabeth Warren *ahem*. Or how about no longer paying crazy people to stand on a stage and yell at white people for the suffering of minorities (that Democrats cause) and that there are as many genders as there are flavors of ice cream?
Either way, let’s get back to the surprised NBC News correspondent.
He mentioned to the two students who said their biggest concern was school that they had not mentioned the biggest issues that “people talk about on the news all the time – the Russia investigation, the Supreme Court.”
The students answered that they simply did not watch the news, which is why they do not concern themselves with that sort of stuff.
The correspondent moved on to two more students. He told them that it could fall to them whether or not Congress was in the hands of Republicans or Democrats and asked them if they were currently thinking about that. Their answer, at this point, should not come as a surprise. They are not very enthusiastic or concerned about voting or even who Congress goes to. The student who answered also mentioned that he assumes that “the people voting have probably some idea of who they are voting for.”
The correspondent then turned to the other student, a girl, and asked her if she was going to vote. She says: “I should,” and mentions that “we are the most unreliable people [for] Democrats…”
The correspondent finally conceded that they might not vote and asked them, in a disappointed tone, that the Democrats “can’t count on you guys necessarily.” The students answered with a relatively uncaring “no”.
Of course, this all comes as relative good news and bad news. The good news is that these kids aren’t being poisoned by what the media says. The bad news is that they are also not getting themselves informed of how diabolical the Democrat Party is and the horrendous behavior they have shown throughout the Kavanaugh confirmation process and even before that.
They actually kind of remind me of the Chinese millennials who were not interested in communism, in a way.
And all things considered, I am not so surprised that these kids are not all that interested in voting. Most people, believe it or not, are not all that political. This includes even millennials. But I will admit that I, myself, was about as surprised as the NBC News correspondent. Knowing what’s been going on in this country, the fact that millennials (at least these ones in the video) are not all that interested in voting is actually pretty surprising.
Of course, you also have to take into consideration that these are college kids who have other things in mind. Things like midterms (exams, that is), projects, part-time jobs, events, clubs, friends, relationships, etc., so it is understandable that maybe who wins the 2018 midterm elections might not be at the forefront of their minds.
Generally speaking, midterm elections are not as popular or considered to be as important as presidential elections. And even though both Republicans and Democrats make it a case to point out how important this next election is (for different reasons, obviously), there are still people who will not really care all that much and stay at home on November 6th.
Even I make the point that this midterm election is a lot more important than the ones in the past. In my honest opinion, the 2018 midterms are just as important as the 2016 presidential election. I consider this next election a turning point. Either we fall back to the socialism that ravaged the country during the Obama years, but on steroids, or we push back against the destructive Left and possibly send them over the edge of complete and total insanity.
Insanity that could lead to even more violence that makes the kind of violence we are witnessing now look like a tea party by comparison.
But I digress. From what I can gather with this funny NBC video, I take it that people are not quite as fired up to kick Trump out of office as the Left thought they were. With how they’ve been portraying Trump, they believe the vast majority of the country agrees with them. That Trump’s supporters regretted voting for him the minute he won and are ready to toss him on his behind. That all of America hates that Trump cheated to win and wants to rectify that.
That is so far from reality, the Left might as well be 2D cartoons.
That’s not to say deranged Leftists aren’t fired up to vote down-the-line Democrat this November, but that is to say that there is likely an equal or greater amount of Americans, not just conservatives but Independents and former Democrats too, who are fired up to punish these unruly children calling themselves a political party.
All I know is that this millennial right here is ready to vote down-the-line Republican and keep, if not grow, the GOP majority in Congress. Not necessarily because I believe these Republicans are great and care about what I think or are ready to pass MAGA agenda items, but because I know full-well what the alternative would be.
If I have to choose between a human being with flaws or literally Satan, I would choose the human.
