Poll: Millennials Down on Trump’s Budget, Economic Priorities

A majority of Americans ages 18 to 34 disapprove of President Trump's budget and economic priorities, according to a recent GenForward poll of millennials, a project of the University of Chicago.

Sixty-eight percent of millennials say they disapprove of increasing military spending by cutting spending for the State Department, Environmental Protection Agency and other agencies, while just 32 percent approve.

And two-thirds of these younger Americans — 66 percent — say Trump's budget proposals do more to help the rich, versus 28 percent who say they're aimed more at the middle class. The poll was conducted before the Trump White House officially unveiled its budget this week, but after it had already released key details of its proposals.
