“I don’t even know who I’m going to vote for.”Kaitlynn Motley, twenty, a sophomore physiology and neurobiology major, said the only thing she applauds in the Republican Party is the refusal among some maintain any of the remaining candidates.“It shows a lot of thought into the decision,” said Motley, who said she recently switched her party affiliation to Democrat from Republican for the upcoming MD primary.

College students to GOP: Don't bother

As the Republican presidential campaign turns to MD as well as other states, candidates might just pass over the Univ of Maryland, the largest college in the state.

“I perceive love the election right presently is a joke; there aren't many excellent candidates left on the Republican side, ” said Ariana Lulli, nineteen, a sophomore who's studying to be a teacher. “I don’t even know who I’m going to vote for.”

Kaitlynn Motley, twenty, a sophomore physiology and neurobiology major, said the only thing she applauds in the Republican Party is the refusal among some maintain any of the remaining candidates.

“It shows a lot of thought into the decision,” said Motley, who said she recently switched her party affiliation to Democrat from Republican for the upcoming Maryland primary.

The sentiments are widely shared among younger voters. While crowds of eighteen-to-thirty-four-year-old voters flock to look Sen. Bernie Sanders, who's trailing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, fewer numbers are drawn to Republicans Donald Trump, Ted Cruz or John Kasich.

“No candidate from the Republican Party has ever had a large youthful voters following,” said , director of the Center According to and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement — CIRCLE — at Tufts University.

 

In a national poll in March, found that voters in this age grouping were split: Trump had twenty-three % support, Marco Rubio had 18 percent, both Cruz and Ben Carson had fourteen percent, and Kasich had six percent, Kawashima-Ginsberg said.

“Not one has captured the hearts and minds of the youth vote like ,” said John Della Volpe, director of polling at Harvard Institute of Politics.

“youthful Republicans are so different in the way they think of most social issues,” Kawashima-Ginsberg said. “Our analysis of Pew Research data showed that Youthful republicans are left of older Republicans on most issues.”

Immigration marks the sharpest contrast. Young republicans look immigrants who are in the United States illegally as an asset to the country, whereas older Republicans tend to echo Trump’s views, Kawashima-Ginsberg said.

When Trump does win over younger voters, he wins them over with much narrower margins than he enjoys with older voters, Kawashima-Ginsberg said.

During the March fifteen primaries, for example, Trump didn’t win the majority of younger voters vote in any of the states, though he did get a plurality in FL and Illinois, Kawashima-Ginsberg said.

“The percentage-point disagreement between Trump and the runner-ups Rubio and Cruz, respectively, in both of those cases were ,” Kawashima-Ginsberg said. In Florida, Trump won thirty-six percent, compared to second-place Rubio’s 34 percent. In Illinois, the NY businessman won thirty-two percent, compared to second-place Cruz’s twenty-nine percent.

“Trump does have an outsider appeal to many of them, while Cruz is presently the establishment guy — relative to Trump, anyway,” Kawashima-Ginsberg said. “So, youthful conservatives have a really tough choice to make – either go with someone whose cost propositions oppose at minimum some of their belief, or go with another ideological extreme who's presently lost the ‘outsider’ appeal because he’s the only viable party-backed candidate left.”

Motley’s biggest issue is abortion rights.

“Trump doesn’t really respect women and number matter what someone’s ideas are, if the basic lack of respect for a person is there, I'd have trouble supporting them,” Motley said.

Dan Rosenberry, nineteen, a sophomore computer engineering major, dislikes all of the candidates, particularly Trump.

“Trump is so ridiculously racist and promotes an unhealthy culture for the country,” Rosenberry said, referring to Trump’s remarks on Mexican immigrants and call for a temporary ban on foreign Muslims entering the United States.

Fifty-six % of by the Harvard Institute of Politics in December said they prefer a Democrat to a Republican.

Della Volpe said he doesn't look any Republican candidate gaining significant support among younger voters in the following few months.

Rosenberry, who identifies as a moderate Republican, said he finds Cruz to be too conservative and although he said he doesn’t know much about Kasich, he finds him to be the most desirable of the three.

Will Armstrong, twenty-two, a senior finance major, agrees with Rosenberry.

“While I don’t consent with all of what Obama says, he looks the part — very presidential — and I don’t look that in Ted Cruz or Donald Trump at all,” said Armstrong, who said he identifies as fiscally conservative and socially liberal.

With a win in Ohio, Armstrong said he hopes that Kasich garners more attention.

“Hopefully Kasich will become a small more marketable and arrive out of the shadows,” Armstrong said. “But I’m not sure if he still has time to do so.”
