Pew Research Millennials Report

Topics: Millenials , Pew Research Center

I'm a little late in sharing this news, but the Pew Research Center is running a live webcast all day today of their Millennials conference, timed to coincide with their release of an new survey report that, according to their release, "contrasts the attitudes and behaviors of 18- to 29-year-olds with those of older generations."

The final session, from 12:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Eastern time, will focus on whether younger Americans will turn out in and how they will affect the political landscape in 2010 and beyond. Speakers will include Matt Bai of the New York Times, Eli Pariser of MoveOn.org, Reihan Salam of the New America Foundation and Scott Keeter and Michael Dimock from the Pew Research Center. I'm guessing they will have more to say about this chart and its ramifications:

Interesting. The chart looks like it has just returned to where it was prior to 2004 and that 2008 is simply an anomaly.

The young are the easiest to become lethargic and apathetic if they don't see immediate results.

The current administration has nothing to show for their year in power and 2009 election day mandate.
