Former President Donald Trump's spokeswoman Liz Harrington says that Trump is gaining support and momentum amongst young voters due to the economy and state of the country. 

"They're getting out of college with a huge amount of debt and then they can't buy a home," Harrington said on the Wednesday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "They can barely afford groceries, gas prices are out of control, crime is up and on every single measure, our lives are way worse."

"And that's really hard for young people who want to start a family or want to buy a home," she added.

According to a survey from Realtor.com, approximately 78% of people wanting to purchase a home expect to be priced out of the housing market if interest rates and home prices continue to rise.

The survey finds that roughly 50% of those surveyed believe that not being able to afford a house is keeping them from living the American dream. 

Trump addressed this concern at a Turning Point USA conference earlier this year. 

"I will restore energy independence and bring down interest rates so that young people can once again afford to buy a house and a car," he said during his speech in July. "The basic American dream."

Harrington said Trump's support is growing due to the state of the country, which is why Democrats are panicking for 2024.

"Every single demographic that Democrats have relied upon, for many decades, seems to be completely evaporating in support and President Trump is gaining among African American voters and minorities of all different races," she said. "He's gaining among young voters."
