The Millennial Takeover
It finally happened: This year, millennials surpassed baby boomers as the largest share of the U.S.'s voting-age population. The U.S. now has 88 million millennials, people born 1981 to 2000. They are more than the sum of their student loans. This generation has tremendous political clout: Three of 10 voting-age Americans are millennials, and more members of the generation reach voting age each day. A by-the-numbers look shows a generation poised to take over.
