Putin’s rating among young people fell from 36% to 20%

The Levada Center is a fairly loyal sociological service towards the Kremlin. However, even they cannot hide the obvious. In one of my articles, I already spoke about the approval of the Russian regime by young people. Over time, we can see confirmation of this even at the level of social surveys.
The rating of Vladimir Putin remains at the pre-quarantine level – if the presidential elections in Russia were held this weekend, 39% of citizens would be ready to vote for him. This is evidenced by the results of a survey by the Levada Center. In December 2019, 38% of Russians were ready to vote for Putin.
It is noteworthy that the next most popular answers of Putin in the study are “I would not vote” (24%) and “I don’t know who to vote for” (16%).
Another feature of the survey that Open Media draws attention to is the changing preferences of age groups. Thus, over the year, the share of voters between the ages of 18 and 24 who are ready to vote for Putin dropped from 36% to 20%. By contrast, among people aged 40 to 54, sympathy for the incumbent rose from 31% to 39%.
Age groups from 25 to 39 years old and from 55 years old are stable in their preferences. Like a year ago, 30% and 51%, respectively, are ready to vote for Putin.
