Few Young Americans Happy With Presidential Choices, Dems or GOP
A new survey found that most young Americans are feeling disconnected from both major political parties and their presidential candidates.
Only 28% of adults ages 18-30 say the Democratic and Republican parties do a good job of representing the American people, according to the poll by GenForward, a national survey by the Black Youth Project at U. of Chicago and Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
The outlook isn't great when it comes to the presidential race, either. Just 38% say they have a favorable view of Hillary Clinton, and only 21% say they like Trump.
Large majorities of young adults across racial and ethnic lines consider Trump unqualified to be president. As for Hillary, most young minority respondents think she's qualified, while most whites say she is not.
On Hillary's emails, 43% say Clinton intentionally broke the law in her use of a private email address on a personal server while she was secretary of state. Another 20% think she did so unintentionally. 27% think she showed poor judgment but did not break the law, and 8% say she did nothing wrong at all.
