A recent poll found that while young voters still lean heavily toward the Democrats (nice work, peer pressure, biased media and leftist professors!), there is a noticeable erosion and more support for Republican Congressional candidates, especially among white Millennials. And I wouldn't be surprised to see rising erosion among black Millennials as well.

If the GOP wants to keep Congress, then they should trumpet this story far and wide. Remind young voters that during the Obama years that they were repeatedly told were the coolest time ever, there were long lines of people competing for every job and it looked as if they’d spend the rest of their lives sleeping on mom’s couch and trying to pay off staggering college loan debt with their tips from Starbucks. Now, after just over a year of a GOP House and Senate with Trump in the White House, unemployment is so low and business expansion is so strong that employers are competing for workers.

And here’s the news that should be in every Republican ad aimed at Millennials: employers nationwide are so desperate for help, they’re dropping marijuana from the required employee drug tests. As the head of drug testing practices at a major law firm said, "I have heard from lots of clients things like, 'I can't staff the third shift and test for marijuana.'"

I find it hard to believe that the vaunted “blue wave” is inevitable if the Democrats can no longer depend on the full support of pot smokers who work the night shift.

    We need to get the truth out there. There are still too many people who believe that President Trump's policies hurt them, due to the liberal media.
    Democrats push the idea that President Trump is bad for the country because they are desperate to keep the truth from coming out.
    They have their people fired up. We have to fire up our side.

    I've been trying to change some minds with posts based on our history and why we have gotten into the mess we are. Maybe I can get some interested in finding the real truth about the US and overcome that hungry beast called Progressivism!

    sure wish the employers I went to in the late 80s were competing for employees. This is the best sign for millenials waking up. reality is setting in, they have graduated and up til now, there was no hopes for employment and they have "crushing debt" and no way to pay it off. yeah, the dems didn't offer them anything but promises. They'll wake up and realize a free market economy is what works and socialism doesn't. Someone needs to be very vocal about where socialism has NOT worked. GB, Russia, Germany during WWII, Greece, Spain, Viet nam, China. Yugoslavia. All we need is people to be reminded of Winston Churchill's definition of socialism. that says it all!

    I really don't see the lib tard millenials being smart enough to see through what the jackasses are forcing on America. AND there are way too many rino anti Trumpers that keep feeding those millenials exactly what the lib turds want

    Breath of fresh air when I hear you speak or when I read your columns or remarks. Thank you Gov. Huckabee for having a strong conviction of reality with truth in this world we live in and can dose it with a touch of humor. God has blessed you with discernment of good and evil and expose it.

    I really enjoy your knowledge. Also, I adore your daughter and how she handles those mean liberals. So proud of her work.
