Poll Reveals Younger Generation Favors Donald Trump Over Joe Biden

A recent survey reveals that Donald Trump enjoys significantly higher popularity among Michigan voters aged 18 to 34 compared to Joe Biden.

According to a recent poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, it was found that among 18-34-year-old registered voters in the state, only 28 percent hold a favorable view of President Biden. In contrast, 62 percent view him unfavorably, resulting in a net approval rating of -34. Conversely, 39 percent of respondents in this age group have a favorable view of former President Trump, while 53 percent hold an unfavorable view, resulting in a net approval rating of -14. The telephone poll was conducted between March 8 and 12 and surveyed 1,487 registered voters.

The recent survey delivers a major setback to Biden, considering that he emerged victorious in Michigan during the 2020 presidential election and relied heavily on the support of young voters across the country. This week, Biden and Trump solidified their positions as the anticipated presidential nominees for their respective parties after securing several primary victories.

Unfortunately for Biden, there is more bad news on the horizon. According to the Quinnipiac University poll, Trump is currently positioned for a victory in Michigan, a pivotal swing state. This includes a strong showing among voters aged 18-34.

According to the survey, when respondents were asked about their preference in the presidential election between Joe Biden, the Democrat, and Donald Trump, the Republican, 48 percent indicated their support for Trump, while 45 percent favored Biden. Specifically, among voters aged 18-34, Trump garnered 48 percent support compared to Biden’s 43 percent.


Biden’s only age group where he holds a lead is among those aged 65 and over, with 57 percent support compared to Trump’s 38 percent. This marks a significant shift from the 2020 election, where Biden defeated Trump by a 24-point margin among voters aged 18-29, as reported by a Pew Research study based on validated voters.

Representatives of Donald Trump and Joe Biden’s presidential campaigns, as well as the White House press office, were contacted by Newsweek via email for comment.

According to a recent poll conducted by Fox News on March 3, the findings reinforce the fact that Trump is leading among voters aged 18-29 nationwide. Out of this demographic, 51 percent expressed their intention to vote for Trump in the upcoming November elections, while 45 percent favored Biden. The remaining respondents were either unsure or supporting another candidate. The survey, which included 1,262 registered voters, was conducted between February 25 and 28.

In contrast, a post-election survey conducted by Fox News revealed that 61 percent of voters aged 18-29 cast their vote for Biden, while only 36 percent supported Trump.

In a previous interview with Newsweek, Michael Tyler, the communications director for Biden-Harris 2024, stated that polling has consistently overestimated Donald Trump while underestimating President Biden.

According to Tyler, the behavior of actual voters provides more valuable insights than any poll. It clearly indicates that Joe Biden and the Democrats are consistently performing better, while Donald Trump and the Republican party are facing challenges. They are struggling with financial constraints and internal divisions.

Younger voters have been expressing strong criticism towards Biden for his approach to the Israel-Hamas conflict. In a surprise attack on October 7, Hamas targeted southern Israel, resulting in the loss of 1,200 lives and the capture of several hundred individuals. In response, Israel launched a military campaign that, as reported by the Associated Press, has led to the deaths of over 31,000 Palestinians in Gaza, according to data provided by the Gaza Health Ministry.

According to a poll conducted by The New York Times and Siena College in December, a significant majority of individuals aged 18-19 expressed their disapproval of Biden’s response to the war. The poll revealed that 75 percent of this age group disagreed with Biden’s strong support for Israel and his involvement in vetoing multiple ceasefire resolutions at the United Nations.

In the survey, it was revealed that among Americans aged 18-29, 27 percent expressed their sympathy towards Israel, whereas 47 percent showed their support for the Palestinians.
