James Carville Warns Democrats that One Key Voting Bloc is Leaving Their Party in 'Droves'

Veteran Democratic strategist James Carville shared what seemed like a panic video about young voters leaving the Democrat Party.



“I’ve been very vocal about this,” Carville said in the short video. “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," Carville added.


President Joe Biden was supported by 52% of Americans aged 18 to 34 in the 2020 election, while Donald Trump received support from 48% of the same group, according to data.




The Daily Caller reported, "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."


Carville continued:

“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.”

As an alumni of the Bill Clinton-era Democratic Party, James Carville has no incentive to say something like this unless he was genuinely concerned.


And certainly he looks it.
