Millennials Still Feeling Pretty Apathetic About a Election

Democracy Corps has an interesting new consult out. Basically, it shows that women hatred Donald Trump; unwed women really hatred Donald Trump; and a white operative category doesn’t indeed seem to like him any improved than they favourite Romney.
But here’s a bit that meddlesome me:
What this shows is that, generally speaking, normal Democratic constituencies have been some-more dismissed adult by this year’s choosing theatrics than normal Republican groups. That’s bad news for Trump.
But there’s one exception: millennials. They’re a slightest intent of all groups, and a choosing hasn’t finished most to change that. Their unrestrained is adult a few points from December, yet that’s all. Millennials in college are a lot some-more engaged—the women, anyway—but millennials in ubiquitous aren’t display most some-more unrestrained than common even yet they’re starting from a low base.
This gets to one of my pet gripes: a conflation of millennials with college students. Whenever we hear about a millennial vote, it’s roughly always illustrated by possibly college students or college grads. That’s fine, as prolonged as it’s noted. But customarily it’s not. And college grads are not deputy of all millennials. In fact, as this draft shows, utterly a contrary.
