MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff received some “shocking” answers when he asked dozens of students about the upcoming midterm elections Tuesday; with barely any young adults saying they planned on voting in November.
Soboroff was in southern California’s Orange County -a hotbed of conservative support in the liberal state- to find out how students were preparing for the potential “Blue Wave” predicted for this November.
Watch what happened when I asked a bus stop full of CA students if they'd vote in their *key* midterm district.
While Trump's latest fire drill is underway, here's something else to think about: why young Americans don't vote.

BLUE WAVE CRASHING: DNC Chief Delivers Address to EMPTY EVENT at Atlanta Mall
DNC Chairman Tom Perez delivered remarks to liberal supporters at an “indoor Latin mall” in Atlanta, Georgia this week, speaking to a nearly empty room as Democrats struggle to connect with American voters just months ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.
Perez was speaking at the Plaza Fiesta shopping center Wednesday when he slammed President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress; telling the left-wing activists to “get out and vote” this November.
“Michelle Obama always said, ‘We they go low, we go high.’ I have a variant of that. When they go low, we go vote,” said Perez to the nearly empty room.

“And when we put fear on the ballot, we don’t do so hot. Let’s face it, fear won in 2016, but let’s also face it, hope is making a huge comeback,” he added.

BLUE WAVE CRASHING: Democrat Advantage TUMBLES Ahead of 2018 Midterms
The Democratic Party’s national advantage over their Republican opponents continued to collapse this week; shrinking to four percentage points after double-digit leads just months ago.
A recent survey by CBS News shows the liberal advantage largely evaporating ahead of the 2018 midterms, with 36 percent of those asked saying the GOP should retain control of Congress and 40% hoping for a left-wing “blue wave” in November.
The shrinking advantage and surprising poll numbers were conducted after the President’s “zero tolerance” policy on illegal immigration made national headlines, with the Commander-in-Chief urging Congress to find a permanent solution to the escalating border crisis.
“CBS’s poll, which sampled 2,063 adults between June 21-22, 2018 and has a margin of error of 2.6 percent, also shows there are a significant number of Trump supporters who opposed the zero-tolerance policy but did not hold the president responsible. The results also suggest voters are compartmentalizing the issue,” writes the Daily Caller.
