The 2024 presidential election is shaping up to be a showdown between President Joe Biden and former President, and potential future President, Donald Trump. Trump is currently leading the race for the GOP nomination by nearly 50 points, leaving the incumbent president in a precarious position and the Democrats shaking in their boots.
Could Trump Actually Pull This Off and Win Over Young People? https://t.co/bx0nGpYX9p

Recent polls are not looking good for Biden as Trump maintains a lead of +2.6 against him, with the majority of polls in November showing Trump ahead in all but two. Biden’s support is dwindling, especially among key Democratic constituencies like young voters. Even The Washington Post/ABC News poll from late September showed Trump ahead of Biden by +10, indicating a significant shift away from the current administration.
The media can no longer ignore Biden’s downward spiral in the polls. The POLITICO and The New York Times have both highlighted the president’s weakening support among young voters, which could spell trouble for the Democratic party in the upcoming election. In fact, several polls have shown Trump leading among voters under 35, a demographic that has historically leaned towards the Democratic party.
The Democratic party is facing the harsh reality that Biden’s presidency does not resonate well with younger voters, who are increasingly expressing discontent with his leadership. Whether it’s his handling of the Israel-Hamas conflict or his failure to connect with the issues that matter most to them, Biden’s support among young voters is waning.
As more polls reveal Trump’s appeal to young voters, the narrative of a potential Trump victory is gaining traction. Trump’s resurgence with this demographic could pose a significant threat to the Democratic party’s chances of retaining the presidency in 2024. Biden’s inability to maintain support among key voter groups like young people is a cause for concern for the Democratic party, who cannot afford to take the upcoming election lightly.
With the polls indicating a close race between Trump and Biden, the outcome of the 2024 election could ultimately hinge on voter turnout. Young people, who have historically favored the Democratic party, are showing signs of disillusionment with Biden’s presidency and could play a pivotal role in determining the next president of the United States.
