Joe Biden’s approval rating among young voters drops to 41% – Poll

Washington, Apr 25 (Prensa Latina) President Joe Biden's approval rating was down to 41% among young Americans, nearly 20% on a year ago, a new poll out Monday showed.

The poll from the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School indicated a drop from 46% approval rating for Joe Biden last fall, and 59% last spring.

In terms of specific issues facing young people, the overwhelming majority of respondents in the survey pointed to government action on student loan debt.

About 85% of young Americans were in favor of some kind of political action, but only 38% favored total debt cancellation.

The poll comes after the Joe Biden administration extended the student loan payment moratorium till at least Aug. 31.

The survey also indicated significant disenchantment with democracy, with 36% of 18-to-29-year-olds saying “political involvement rarely has tangible results.”

Meanwhile, 56% said current politics are no longer able to meet the challenges the United States is facing.

A great number of minority groups also stated they often felt under attack in the country: 59% of young Black Americans, 43% of young Asian Americans and 37% of young Hispanic Americans reported feeling under attack in the United States a lot.

Despite these results, young voters are still expected to match turnout seen in 2018 in the upcoming midterm elections.

36% of young Americans said they will “definitely” be voting, compared to 37% at the same point in the 2018 election cycle.
