(TruthAndLiberty.com) – Harvard Kennedy School Institute of Politics director of polling John Della Volpe stated in a New York Times opinion column on Friday that he was worried about the popularity of President Biden among voters in their 20s and 30s.
Della Volpe had previously worked as a pollster in the 2020 presidential campaign of Biden. As he pointed out in the recent piece, the Hamas surprise attack against Israel, and the war that broke out in Gaza as a result has left many young Americans being focused on politics with a “heightened intensity.”
However, as he pointed out, unless millennials and Generation Z voters believed that Biden had “their backs,” and the Jewish and Palestinian people’s backs, then they would not support him. He added that for many of them, the decision will be to simply not vote rather than support another alternative that could potentially make it easier for former President Donald Trump to return to office.
As he pointed out, while the majority of young Americans were in agreement over Hamas having committed war crimes against Israel, they also wanted to see the American government aid both Israeli and Palestinian people. However, currently, many young progressives are doubting whether the U.S. government is actually committed to keeping the innocent safe. If that continues then Biden might have a hard time winning as the 2020 coalition would be divided. As he noted, this division was also going to make it significantly easier for former President Donald Trump to win back the White House in the upcoming election.
