The Millennial Agenda

Featured Ideas Festival Scholars include Jessica Contreras, Saeed Jones, and Elizabeth Plank. Move over boomers. The millennials are now the largest living generation in the country, and they’ll make up about a third of eligible voters in the 2016 election. The most secular and diverse generation in American history, they helped carry Barack Obama into office in 2008, and voted overwhelmingly for him in 2012. Bernie Sanders has a 54 percent favorable rating with millennials, over Hillary Clinton’s 37 percent and Donald Trump’s 17 percent. Why? What issues are driving millennial loyalties? What media do they rely on to make informed decisions? Will they swing the 2016 election, and how?
