The Post reports that this particular 4-way poll (McClatchy/Marist) had a fairly high error margin, but it is not a complete aberration. A couple other recent 3-way polls asking about Trump, Clinton, and Johnson also found Trump doing very badly with younger Americans. Last week (Fox News) found him leading Johnson by only 23% to 19% among voters under 35, and a Pew poll in July found Johnson leading Trump by 22% to 21% among voters 18-29:
All three polls, by the way, also had Hillary Clinton falling short of a majority. The Fox poll found her right at 50%, while McClatchy/Marist had her at 41% and the Pew study reported her with 47% among the groups of young voters surveyed.
This is all unprecedented and encouraging. It shows an ongoing trend away from the establishment cartel parties. I think it also reflects that younger voters have little use for Trump's bigotry in particular. From the standpoint of the the GOP made a big collective mistake in nominating him, but if it turns out to be the straw that disrupts the 2-party cartel and brings down their monopoly, maybe it will have done all of us a favor.
Meanwhile, those whose #1 priority is preventing Clinton's election may have to start thinking about switching horses to Johnson as a more viable opposition candidate without Trump's 70% negative approval rating. That's what's been reported among ALL voters – his unfavorability rating with voters under 30, according to the McClatchy poll, is a whopping 82%! It increasingly looks like for all his bluster, his chances of winning are rather bleak.
