The reign of the largest voting group, the baby boomers, was overthrown by the infamous millennials in 2018. According to CNN’s article, “Millennials to pass baby boomers as largest voter-eligible age group, and what it means”, the baby boomer’s voting dynasty existed for four decades.
However, the CNN article stated that the millennials, though superior in numbers, were not as inclined to vote as the baby boomers as of 2017. FactTank backed up this claim, saying that baby boomers tended to vote more than millennials at the same age.
Before the 2018 midterm elections, it was projected by USA Today’s poll that only 31% of millennials were planning on voting. The article stated that the remainder felt uncertain whether they would vote, or were too uninformed.
Ultimately, there seemed to be a higher percentage of millennial voters during the midterms, according to Elite Daily. It should be noted, though, that information concerning the presence of millennial votes was limited.
