Millennial Voting

Above is a map displaying how millennials voted in the 2016 election. If only millennials were able to vote, it would have been an overwhelming victory for the Democratic Party: 504 to 23. Demographers William Straus and Neil Howe define ‘Millennials’ as being born between 1982 and 2004 – however, there is not an exact dividing line. Birth years can range between 1983 and 2001 for some demographers, such as Elwood Carlson. What seems to be clear is that as millennials age and become a larger political force, the country may become increasingly democratic in future elections.

One thought on “Millennial Voting

  1. Oh, you’re a funny person tagging this Clinton. Ask the Rest Of The Question: would she have had a chance in the primaries, if only Millennials had counted?

    It was old (sellouts) against young that divided Dems and cost the party the White House. After she divided the party, she couldnt bring them together again. People stayed home or voted 3rd party. Trump didnt even win– Hillary simply lost, and that’s the rest of what Dems did wrong.
