Social Policy & Politics Program | Report
As the largest generation in American history, Millennials are poised to remake politics. In this report, we examine the unique worldview and experiences of a generation empowered by information with expanding choices and opportunities for personalization. Millennials have distinct ideas about politics that differ from their parents and grandparents. In particular, Millennials:
- Eschew party identity, instead calling themselves Independents;
- Are open to government solutions, even as their concerns about government efficacy grow;
- Are skeptical of big institutions, such as corporate America and organized religion;
- Diverge on culture war issues, adopting both liberal and conservative values;
- Embrace racial and ethnic diversity, including immigrants; and,
- Question American exceptionalism, instead emphasizing cooperative engagement.
