Young voters are more disaffected than ever when it comes to the economy — and also excited to vote in November, according to a new poll obtained by BuzzFeed.
The poll was commissioned by youth-vote nonprofit Generation Opportunity and conducted by inc./WomanTrend, which has done polls on behalf of groups like National Right to Life and Americans for Tax Reform.
Out of a sample of 1,003 people aged 18-29, 89 percent said the economy was impacting their daily lives (manifesting itself in skipped weddings, less vacations, and added part-time jobs); 84 percent said the economy had forced them to delay a major life decision.
