‘Not The Ideal Democratic Candidate’: Young Voters Tell CNN Just How ‘Discouraged’ They Are About Biden

Young Pennsylvania voters during a Thursday segment told CNN how unenthusiastic their demographic is about President Joe Biden.

Former President Donald Trump leads Biden 48% to 40% among young voters ages 18-29, according to a recent New York Times/Siena College poll. The voters featured on “CNN News Central” said the overall sentiment among their demographic is a lack of enthusiasm for the president.

“I feel like a lot of people are discouraged, but I think that‘s where influencers come in and we can really help motivate them, encourage them to vote,” a social media influencer named Kenny Screven who pushes people to support Biden said.

CNN correspondent Danny Freeman asked the voters to rate their enthusiasm to cast ballots in November on a scale of one to 10.

Two of them said “five” while one said “seven or eight” and an 18-year-old Biden voter named Saranya Singh said “one,” adding, “I’m not excited at all.”

“A lot of my friends and a lot of people in our age group are really hesitant to vote this year at all because I mean, Biden is not the ideal democratic candidate in any way,” Singh said.

“The Biden campaign should definitely be seeing that as, like, if the youth vote slips away, like Pennsylvania slips away,” a college sophomore named Anish Garimidi who backs Biden said.

Biden beat Trump by 11 points among voters from ages 25 to 29 in 2020, according to CNN’s exit poll.

Black women in Pennsylvania told MSNBC that Biden should withdraw from the presidential race following his disastrous debate performance.

“Wish they would both drop out. I’m a bit worried about Biden’s ability to run a country,” a voter named Clarke said. “I don’t know if he’ll be able to do it if he is elected for the next four years. And I do think he has other options within the party who could step up and carry out similar things that he wants to be carried out. I just don’t think it should be him.”
