The Kids Are Alright?

An Interesting poll from College Pulse/Knight Foundation on the political views of college students at four year institutions has just been released Among other things, Biden is ahead of Trump by a gaudy 70-18. The findings seem trustworthy based on the methodology and the personnel involved; this isn't some ersatz advocacy or special interest poll.

Of course, college students are hardly all there is to the youth vote but these findings are a good sign. Combined with recent polling data that show Biden's overall youth support firming up (see the link to the Harry Enten piece), I am not too worried any more about Biden's ability to carry the youth vote by a wide margin. Of course, how many of these college students and youth overall actually wind up casting ballots is another matter.
