Young Americans Losing Support For Democrats

According to a new survey by CNN, Americans are slowly losing support for the Democrat party.

"Forty-nine percent of people questioned this month in a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. national survey say the country is better off with the Democrats controlling Congress. That's down 7 points from January, but it's 15 points higher than the 34 percent who say the nation would be better with the Republicans running Capitol Hill."

It's only 3 months into the new administration and support is already dropping quickly. What's even more surprising, and encouraging, is that Congress is losing support very quickly in the under 35 demographic.

"Most of the Democrats' loss of support has come among younger Americans," said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "In January, two-thirds of those under the age of 35 said Democratic control of Congress was good for the country. Now that figure is down to 48 percent."

Democrats are still drastically beating Republicans in the field of bi-partisan cooperation. Sixty two percent of those surveyed feel that Democrats are cooperating with Republicans, while only 37% feel the same way about Republicans.
