    Isn't that the age group with the least voting percentage?

    Even if so, I believe it is the largest cohort in the history of the United States. There's more than 80 million of'm so they outnumber even the boomers by a few mil.

    Here's voter turnout for the two...

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/29/booming/voter-turnout-for-boomers-and-millennials.html?_r=0
    ...In 1976, when boomers were between 18 and 30 years old, their turnout rate was 50 percent. In 2008, 51 percent of millennials — ages 18 to 28 at the time — voted.

    ...It is not too surprising that as people age, they’re more likely to vote. In the 2008 Obama-McCain election, 69 percent of boomers — aged 44 to 62 at the time — turned out compared to the 51 percent of 18- to 28-year-olds.


    So while they are young still, with time to get more involved later in life, perhaps still somewhat holding onto the idea of others doing for them--ie while they might support sending ground troups, "less than 20% would be inclined to serve if needed" according to the poll-- they certainly are leaning centrist to liberal economically with a solid majority leaning liberal socially, indicating so far that the right wing conservative movement will continue to lose ground as millennials age and take their place in the world.

    wouldnt it be a milestone if we could forget about "party" and concentrate on finding someone who was committed to getting things accomplished for the good of all and not trying to polarize entire swaths of the population in doing so?

    i must be dreaming - forgive me

    Another idiotic poll that samples only a tiny number of a particular group and than falsely assume the mass majority of that group thinks a particular way. Most Millennials that I know are quite conservative and feel that they are being taken for granted by the democrats. Millennials are not as pro democratic and liberal as they are being falsely perceived. There are a lot of Millennials that are fiscally and politically conservative especially ones from the fast growing outer ring suburbs and rural small towns. There is also is fairly sizable number of conservative Millennials in urban and first ring suburban areas as well. So they can take all these polls and throw them out the window because they are inaccurate and meaningless.

    I am convinced RBR is either a delusional #FoxFeauxNews sheeple or a paid GOP shill. Or perhaps both.

    Even utopian solutions don't appear out of thin air but by engaging discussion among varying points of view. Thus diversity and freedom of expression are great strengths of America. Freedom of association. Birds of feather.

    It just so happens that all the sticky icky tarred feathers flocked to the repelling Republican side of the aisle during the last oil spill. Democrats formed volunteer groups to catch the little critters and soap them up but sadly we couldn't get to all of them. So some we saved, what was willing, but some continue to drown in their own bile.

    We hold out great hope for the millennials. We didn't let them stay home for an extra 10 years after high school for nothin', ya know. Seems they're emerging with some smarts and not just micro-aggressions.

    http://www.people-press.org/2015/04/07/a-deep-dive-into-party-affiliation/
    ...new analysis of long-term trends in party affiliation among the public provides a detailed portrait of where the parties stand among various groups in the population. It draws on more than 25,000 interviews conducted by the Pew Research Center...

    Millennials continue to be the most Democratic age cohort; 51% identify as Democrats or lean Democratic, compared with 35% who identify with the GOP or lean Republican. There are only slight differences in partisan affiliation between older and younger millennials.


    So we can see not just the decline of the Republican party currently but also by the numbers of the younger generation we can see it declining further in the future.

    Perhaps this is why we often witness Republicans ranting in such desperation, as if they were gasping for their last breath.

    Because they are

    doomed

    And they will not be missed

    I think they need to start up the draft. Men in trouble or without jobs need to go in the service

    Well, you have the wrong country. In a Democracy the "someone" you are looking for is you. Things have not been working because we have been electing Kings and slacking off on the democracy.

    We just got our troops back, why would we want to send them back again? To feed the war machine? Oh, and you missed this part about Millennials, "They Don't Want To Serve", they want to send everyone else icon_lol.gif

    You evidently are a blind sycophant to the democratic party and all their ultra leftist pollsters that are always coming up with meaningless bullshit polls that sample only a tiny number of people.

    Many Millennials are not as liberal and progressive as they are being perceived which is one painful little truth that have ultra leftists worried sick.
