    Washington (CNN)—In the next presidential election, Republican leaders are hoping to win among young voters -- something they haven't done since 1988, before many of today's young voters were born.

    But winning over the current crop of young adults -- millennials -- won't be easy. They are more liberal than their parents, even when they identify as Republican.

    Harvard poll finds Republicans are losing millennials

    Harvard's Institute of Politics released the 28th edition of its national poll of young Americans Thursday and the results spell trouble for the Republican Party.

    The survey of more than 2,000 young adults, ages 18 to 29, found that the percentage of millennials who prefer to see a Republican win back the presidency is trending downward.

    Well, they tried to latch on to the cyclical popularity of Ayn Rand, but people are realizing how flawed her thinking is. Again.

    The GOP is moving in the opposite direction as the majority of the country. They are getting more and more bigoted and waging war on working families, and desperately trying to make the income gap wider --- their goal is to make the super rich even richer.
    That's why all of their potential nominees are losing in the polls to both Hillary and Bernie Sanders.
