James Carville Sounds Alarm About Key Dem Voting Bloc Leaving Party In ‘Droves’

Former Bill Clinton campaign strategist James Carville expressed concerns on Sunday about the number of young voters, a key voting block for Democrats, that are leaving his party.

President Joe Biden was supported by 52% of Americans aged 18 to 34, while former President Donald Trump received support from 48% of this crucial Democratic voting bloc in February polling data. This is a major difference from past presidential elections, including 2020, which Carville called an alarming development on “Carville’s Classroom.”


“I’ve been very vocal about this,” Carville said. “It’s horrifying our numbers among younger voters, particularly younger blacks, younger latinos … younger people of color. Particularly males. We’re not shedding them, they’re leaving in droves.”

Younger voters were key to Biden’s coalition in 2020 as a Pew Research Center analysis found 59% of voters aged 18 to 29 voted for him in the 2020 presidential election, while Trump received 33% of the vote among this bloc.

Some polling indicated that Biden’s recent weakness among younger voters is linked to the president’s handling of the conflict between Israel and terrorist group Hamas, with young people perceiving him as pro-Israel.

“I think this issue is deep, and I think it’s a lot deeper than just progressive advocates or young people or college campuses,” Carville asserted about the Middle East war in February. “I hope the president can get some kind of ceasefire and take this off the front burner because, frankly, its damage politically is pretty substantial. And if we get to Chicago at the convention and this thing is still going on, I don’t want to think about what‘s going to happen there.”

The significant advantage that the Democratic Party held over Republicans with black Americans in general and Hispanic Americans aged 18 to 29 has declined nearly 20% in the last three years, according to Gallup data published in February.
