James Carville: ‘We won’t let them fall, they will leave en masse’

“I’ve been very clear about this,” Carville said. “It’s horrible for our numbers among younger voters, especially younger blacks, younger Latinos … younger people of color. Especially males. We are not throwing them off, they are leaving en masse.”

Carville noted that young voters have traditionally been an important Democratic voting bloc. He also noted that young people’s feelings about President Biden’s handling of the war between Israel and Gaza are an important factor.

Carville said in February: “I think this issue is profound, and I think it goes much deeper than just progressive advocates or young people or college campuses. I hope the president can broker some sort of ceasefire and take this off the forefront, because frankly the political damage is quite significant. And if we get to the convention in Chicago and this thing is still going on, I don’t want to think about what’s going to happen there.

He has a point

The Clinton-era campaign strategist isn’t wrong. And the 2024 elections could be a very different kind of year for his party. It also extends to other traditionally Democratic voting blocs.

The significant advantage the Democratic Party had over Republicans among Black Americans in general and Hispanic Americans ages 18 to 29 has declined by nearly 20% over the past three years, according to Gallup data published in February were published.

But it’s the young people James Carville is most concerned about.

According to told the Daily Caller: “President Joe Biden was supported by 52% of Americans ages 18 to 34, while former President Donald Trump received support from 48% of this crucial Democratic voting bloc in February polls.”

“Younger voters were key to Biden’s 2020 coalition, as a Pew Research Center analysis found that 59% of voters between the ages of 18 and 29 voted for him in the 2020 presidential election, while Trump received 33% of received votes among this bloc,” the story said. .

Will 2024 be significantly different?

And are James Carville’s concerns justified? We’ll know for sure in November.
