Subject: 63% of a gathering wave think Trump sucks
'Millennials want to shake things up in America's largely two-party political system.
That's according to a new NBC News/GenForward poll that showed 71 percent of millennials think there
should be a third major party. Most respondents said neither the Republican nor Democratic parties
represent the American people well, and 65 percent said the country is on the wrong track overall.
Those majority findings stretch across racial subgroups, genders and partisan affiliations,
according to the poll, which was conducted between Oct. 26 and Nov. 10 and surveyed 1,876 adults
ages 18 to 34.
Analyzing the findings along gender lines, however, shows a higher percentage of male millennials
think a third party is needed, with 74 percent in favor of a third party compared with 69 percent of
female millennials, according to NBC News.
By affiliation, independents and Democratic or Democratic-leaning millennials were more likely to
think a third party is needed at roughly 75 percent each, while 67 percent of Republicans or
Republican leaners agreed.
Strong majorities of white, African-American, Asian-American and Latinos also expressed support for
a third party.
Only 26 percent of all surveyed millennials said they think the major political parties do an
"adequate" job of representing the people. And a majority – 63 percent – said they disapprove of
President Donald Trump's performance in office.'
