Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

New polling from Reuters/Ipsos shows the Democrats are losing support among millennials, just in time for the election!

The Daily Caller reports that the poll surveyed more than 16,000 registered voters from January through March of this year. The data shows that only 49 percent of voters between the ages of 18-34 are likely to support a Democrat. That’s close to a 10 percent drop from 2016 polling.

On the issue of which party has a better economic plan they’re almost tied, with 34 % favoring Democrats and 32 % favoring Republicans. In 2016, Democrats held a 12 % advantage on economic issues.

The poll did find that two of three young voters do not like Donald Trump, but that doesn’t mean they won’t vote Republican in November.

This is all bad news for the Democrats. They count on young voters to help put them over the finish line. Looks like that blue wave is turning into a blue ripple.
