Youth Vote Will Consider Trump

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Conservative author and columnist Kristin Tate talked with Chris Stigall on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT about the impact she thinks millennials will have on this year’s presidential election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Tate thinks Trump has a legitimate shot to over-perform with younger voters who don’t traditionally choose the Republican.

“Politics is a lot about branding, especially when it comes to young people. Young people want to embrace a brand that’s compassionate and cool and hip. Of course, the media has beat up on Trump and the other Republicans, relentlessly called them bigots, called them cold-hearted. That’s going to be a big challenge for Trump moving into this election. I think he’ll come out swinging and I think people are going to be surprised with how successful he will be with the youth demographic. I’m not saying he’ll capture the youth vote or anything but I think he’ll exceed expectations.”
