WASHINGTON, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- Despite U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's strategy of patching together a bipartisan coalition by appealing to the millions of young supporters of former Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, a new poll found that his populist play had so far failed among millennials.

The latest USA Today Rock the Vote poll released on Sunday found that while 56 percent of voters under 35 say they would vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, one in five in this age group support Trump.

In addition, Clinton trounced Trump among Sanders' supporters, with 72 percent supporting the former secretary of state and 11 percent backing Trump.

The number of the Millennial generation, now 18-34, was estimated to be 75.4 million, according to U.S. Census Bureau data released in April.

While young voters tended to vote for Democrats in recent election cycles, the latest poll by USA Today and Rock the Vote showed that young adults may reject the Republican nominee at an unprecedented rate during this election cycle.

According to the poll, Trump's support among young voters was even lower than the estimated 32 percent of support Richard Nixon received among 18-to-29-year old voters in 1972 amid widespread protest against the Vietnam War among young population.

Meanwhile, the poll offered the latest evidence for verifying the widely perceived allegation that a majority of supporters of both nominees may base their allegiance not on approval of their nominee but rejection of the other.

According to the poll, 54 percent of Trump supporters and 51 percent of Clinton supporters say one of the main reasons they back the nominee is to keep the other out of the White House.


RIO DE JANEIRO Mike Wallace Jersey , April 6 (Xinhua) -- Less than nine months have passed since Brazil's media bemoaned the "death" of the country's football after the Selecao's calamitous 7-1 World Cup semifinal loss to Germany.

But in the week the Christian world celebrates the resurrection of Jesus, Brazilian football can also claim to be basking in the glow of a revival of sorts.

The Selecao's 1-0 victory over Chile last Sunday was the team's eighth straight win since 1994 World Cup-winning captain Dunga took over as national coach for a second time last August.

The list of vanquished rivals during that sequence includes Argentina, Colombia and France -- all currently ranked in FIFA's world top 10.

But it's not just results on the pitch that are helping to heal the wounds inflicted by Joachim Low's Germany.

Brazil's production line of world class talent, which had largely stalled over the past decade, is showing signs of regaining its old efficiency.

Last week's signing by Real Madrid of right-back Danilo for 31.5 million euros from Porto is a case in point.

The move made the 23-year-old the fourth most expensive full-back in history, behind Luke Shaw, Lilian Thuram and Dani Alves.

Brazil's 2002 World Cup-winning left-back Roberto Carlos has been among those to publicly sing Danilo's praises, comparing him to Alves at the same age.

Equally promising is the rapid ascent of Hoffenheim attacker Roberto Firmino, also 23.

Perhaps it was more than just a coincidence that the two combined for Brazil's winner against Chile at the Emirates stadium.

It was Danilo's probing run and perfectly weighted pass that allowed Firmino to dart past Chile's defense before rounding keeper Claudio Bravo.

Like Danilo, Firmino was not even in Brazil's World Cup squad last year.

He has now reportedly attracted the interest of Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United, and appears set to leave Hoffenheim in the summer.

Other Brazilians to have flourished since being overlooked by Luiz Felipe Scolari for the World Cup include Paris Saint-Germain's 20-year-old center-back Marquinhos and 22-year-old Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho.

Both have also had the Selecao door opened by Dunga and are certain to be taken to the Copa America in Chile in June.

It's little wonder Brazilians are cautiously regaining their sense of footballing pride after that traumatic Belo Horizonte afternoon last July.

Perhaps renowned Brazilian journalist Juca Kfouri put it best.

"Nobody is saying that the national team is suddenly wonderful," Kfouri wrote on his blog.

"But it shouldn't be forbidden to speak well of them, because they can only beat opponents that are put before them. If they had lost those friendlies wouldn't it have been much worse?"

ROME, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- Yields on Italian debt rose to their highest levels since late 2014 this week, while stock prices sunk to their lowest levels of the year, as investors began to price potential political instability into their evaluations.

To be sure, the problems are not uniquely Italian: financial analysts said jitters about right-wing populist leader Marine Le Pen's chances of winning in the upcoming elections in France, along with inflation worries, were on investors' minds. But the prospect of snap elections in Italy combined with more long-standing problems like anemic economic growth and an unhealthy national banking sector are making the problems particularly acute.

"To some significant extent, European worries are hurting certain indicators in Italy," Francesco Daveri, an economist with Rome's Sacro Cuore University, said in an interview. "But worries about the banking system or the economy are also important, because it's not clear how effectively the government will be able to confront them."

Paolo Gentiloni is now Italy's fourth consecutive appointed prime minister, dating back to 2011, when then-Premier Silvio Berlusconi resigned amid fears that skyrocketing interest rates could force Italy to default on its debt. Since then the country has s.
