  •  Insult them at your peril. (5+ / 0-)

    They're very engaged, very connected, just not easily fooled. They're not political lemmings.

    •  There are lots of millenials where I work (0+ / 0-)

      Most of them are white, from middle-to-upper-class families. Most have college degrees.

      The white males watch FOX or ESPN and the white females watch A&E or the Food Network.  When given links to news sources like Salon.com or HuffPo, they react like somebody tossed a slug at them.

      Aside from the two LGBTs (who almost by definition are politically aware and engaged, and for much the same reasons that every single black female at my workplace is aware and engaged), not one of them could name their US representatives, much less their state representatives or state senators.
