(Sounds like the 2016 American election.)

Instead Corbyn’s strategists decided to focus on supposedly vulnerable 
“target seats” held by the Tories, and campaigned there instead of 
mustering support in traditional working-class areas.

Thinking that a “youthquake” could substitute for more traditional forms 
of support, they also concentrated on the big cities and university 
towns. The “youthquake” failed to materialize. Although more 
18-24-year-olds were registered to vote than in 2017, fewer actually 
voted in 2019.
