Young Voters and Trump

He’s loud, bombastic and has a lot of energy. That’s why a lot of young people are turning up at Donald Trump rallies.

Dr. Allan Saxe at U-T Arlington says Trump appeals to young people who don’t want long drawn out solutions to the issues of the day.

“The fact that Trump and Bernie Sanders don’t get heavy into specifics helps attract younger voters. They don’t get bored listening to a lot of detail.”

Saxe says Trump’s TV show is a big draw for younger people who grew up watching him on the small screen.
