Outnumbered Boomers

Sometimes characterized as the “echo boom,”
this is the first generation to come of age
in the new millennium.

In 2016, 55% of all Millennials identified as
Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents,
while just 33% identified as Republicans
or GOP-leaning independents.

were the most ever cast by this generation.
Generation X was the only generation whose
voter turnout rate peaked in 2016.
