Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina may not be killing in the polls, but she is killing it with conservative millennials.
According to G2 Analytics, a platform that allows user to give real-time feedback during events, and the College Republican National Committee, 80.8% of 328 millennial Republicans polled, are more likely to support the business woman after watching the fourth debate.
Currently, Fiorina is in seventh place in national polls, but her connection to the younger crowd makes sense. “Fiorina debates well, that is really clear, and these are likely Republican Millennial voters and, in my mind, they are attracted to strong debate performances,” Quentin Kidd, Ph. D., the director of the Judy Ford Wason Center for Public Policy and vice provost at Christopher Newport University, told USA Today College. “Millennials, in general, are interested in diverse candidates, and they are probably attracted to Fiorina because she is a woman and a strong and confident one at that.”
As of today, Donald Trump is leading in the national polls, but millennials know that ish is crazy. “If you have six out of 10 conservative Millennials who say they don’t know who they are going to vote for, It means they are not comfortable with those who are currently leading the pack, principally Donald Trump,” said Kidd.
