Jacob Soboroff, a correspondent for NBC News recently filmed a segment where he goes out as a “man on the street” and encourages millennials to vote Democrat in the November midterm elections. However, things did not go quite as he planned.
In fact, shock of all shocks, a vast majority of millennials weren’t interested in voting at all and were even less interested in the narrative pushed by the media.
Maybe there’s still some hope for the future generation after all.
Soboroff visited the University of California-Irvine campus in Orange County — a conservative area — to search for students who were interested in voting in the upcoming election.
“Sorry, not to be annoying, but we’re with NBC News and I’m just trying to figure out, is anyone here going to vote in the election on November 6?” Soboroff asked. “Anybody? Anybody? Nobody’s going to vote?”Trending:
Most of the students didn’t even acknowledge him.
“Is anybody going to vote in the Congressional election in November?” Soboroff asked as he grew frustrated.Advertisement - story continues below
Finally, one student acknowledged him and said that he was going to vote and that the cost of education was the most important issue to him but then added that he doesn’t watch the news and wasn’t interested in narratives being pushed by the media, like the Russia investigation.
Soboroff talked to other students and told them that the “the Democrats want” them to vote for their far-left party but that “they can’t count on you guys necessarily.”

You can clearly see Soboroff is completely confounded by the fact these kids aren’t all gung-ho about going to vote. It seems as if he has bought and consumed the faulty narrative his employers push in assuming that every young person who goes to college is some raging liberal who breathes, eats, sleeps politics and is consumed with a passion for being a cool, hip activist.
Nope. Not true.
Many of these kids just want to go to school and live their lives, which, strangely, is precisely what most adults want to do too. Politics are important, but contrary to popular belief, they are not everything.
