NBC News correspondent Jacob Soboroff encouraged millennials to vote during a segment that aired on Tuesday —hinting that they needed to vote for Democratic candidates — only to learn that not only are students not interested in voting, but they also are not interested in the narratives the media is pushing.
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?”
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.
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.”
