In a New York Times poll, 64 percent of eligible voters under the age of 35 said they would not vote for Trump in the upcoming election. Among respondents with a bachelor’s degree — an important indicator of the political preferences of voters who donate money — that figure is 65 percent.
In addition, 44 percent of respondents said they would vote for Joe Biden again – in the event of a re-election in 2020 – and only 41 percent for Trump. However, Biden’s popularity has hit rock bottom this year, with only 33 percent of voters saying they support his policies.
