Can Biden appeal to young voters, protestors without alienating older ones?


On today's What America's Thinking, Hill-HarrisX data shows young voters are much more likely to identify as liberal but are also less likely to view Joe Biden that way. Research from Hit Strategies and the Alliance for Youth Action shows young voters vote for the issues they care about vs. a candidate they like when they also distrust the electoral system. Democratic pollster and Partner of Hit Strategies, Roshni Nedungadi, joins Hill TV to explain public opinion on the issue. Hill Reporter Julia Manchester discusses Joe Biden's new ad and the thin line he's walking to appeal to young voters and protestors while not alienating older voters.
