A new poll from Pew Research reveals nearly half of young Democratic voters say other countries are better places to live than the United States; a sharp divide between millennials and older generations.
According to the survey, 47% of Democrats under the age of 30 say “other countries are better than the US.”
That number falls to 19% for young Republicans.
“Democrats have become more likely to say there are other countries that are better than the U.S.,” says Pew Research. “In telephone surveys, the share of Democrats saying this is higher than at any point since the question was first asked by Pew Research Center in 2011, and there has been a corresponding decline in the share saying the U.S. stands above other nations.”
