Survey: Millennials Dislike Trump, but Broadly Support His Policies

Millennials claimed that they do not like President Donald Trump, but broadly approve of his policies. Oh, the irony:

The Institute of Politics at Harvard University spring survey, released Tuesday, found only 32 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds approve of Trump’s performance and 41 percent of respondents give Trump a letter grade of “F” through his first 100 days in office.

But when asked about major planks of Trump’s agenda, millennials issued broad support for the president’s trade policies and law enforcement priorities.

For instance, 60 percent said “cracking down on countries’ illegal and unfair trade practices that hurt American workers” would make America better. Only 13 percent said it would make the country worse. Support on the issue comes from both sides of aisle, said John Della Volpe, polling director at Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics.
