Perhaps we can have faith in the younger generation after all...

    Yep. And this is only the first taste of our voting preferences. We may be the most progressive generation in the history of this country. Older generations better stop bashing us and start listening to us. We're going to be running this show pretty soon.

    Not sure I really trust those numbers since most of them are lying about whether they will vote.

    You mean an entitled generation is planning on voting for the entitlement candidate? Shocking.

    I think you mean they are sane people voting for the sane candidate. But I can see how you might mistype that. Oh - and if ever there was someone who was entitled - that would be Trump. He is not in touch with those he thinks he's representing. To think otherwise would be delusional.

    Have you checked in on Trump and his rantings of a lunatic. Is the best you have some facial expressions? It would be like me trying to tell you the size of Trump's hands matter in the election.

    Yawn. The former jocks mocking "the entitled generation" when they realize having been captain of the football team in high school translates to diddly-squat in the real world. My heart bleed for them.

    Don't worry. Some old folks actually side w/ the younger generations. After all, it's the sustainable thing to do. Too bad some of the boomers didn't get that.

    So maybe it's not exactly us vs them in the current season. More like a pincers operation. The very old and the rather young against the decaying core..

    You're the one who brought up the "everyone wins a trophy" meme. You figure it out.

    Spoken like a true basement dweller. Ew, yucky sports. You are probably unaware of it, but sports, not just football, are great for kids for many different reasons. Please continue down your path.

    Like or not, the "entitled" generation is going to be in charge, there will come a time when millennials outnumber and outvote the boomers, and they will be making the policy and medical decisions when most baby boomers are ploppin old dookies in their Depends. If at that point the millennials decide to treat the baby boomers like the baby boomers treated the millennials, there won't be any hot nurse to wipe your butt, no comfortable living, no living out your last years with dignity.

    However, millennials are better than that, so it won't be so bad. But I like to remind the boomers anyway, just in case, that there always comes a time when the old need the help of the young, and some of the young may not be as forgiving for the fact that the boomers ruined our future.

    Putting the personalities of Clinton and Trump aside, what millennials do not seem to understand is that Mrs. Clinton's policies are not going to help them, but rather hurt them. I've never understood this. Mrs. Clinton's economic plans include higher taxes and more regulations, hardly a pro-growth prescription for the current tepid economy. Millenials generally have student loan debt and cannot find good paying jobs, but none of Mrs. Clintons plans will help that. Lack of good jobs means this group is in debt longer, cannot save for retirement, and rent longer (or continue to live with parents) instead of buying their own home and building their assets. All the free stuff that she and Sanders promise will ultimately be paid by them, because the old axiom is still true: there's no such thing as a free lunch.

    Lets just say I suspect the voter turnout for millennials will be slightly under 90%.

    Trump won't be able to help them either. And he's completely erratic. But I agree that you can't get something for nothing.

    Yup, posted it another Trump thread which is plentiful here. But what do you expect? Most were coming from the Bernie Sanders club and he is endorsing Hillary. Millennials are not that brain dead.

    Most people voting for Trump consist of pompous rich jack**es like him, uneducated rednecks, and white supremacist that enjoy waving the Confederate flag.
