@hightor,
Anyone who watches fox news knows the Miller report is just democratic false news. Right?

This Data Proves — Once And For All — The Stereotypes About Lazy Millennials Are Wrong
Quote:
Hidden in this census data, BuzzFeed News found that 1.4 million American millennials (born 1981–1996) supported their parents in in 2016, the most recent year for which data was available. That number was statistically indistinguishable from the number of boomers (born 1946–1964) supporting their adult children in the same year.

People are generally dissatisfied with both parties, but two things tip the scale in favor of one or the other, imo.

1) people get tired of having the Democrats pushed on them while they are in school. So when other people outside of school make them realize how biased education is toward the Democrats, they get upset about it and don't want to support them.

The reason Democrats get votes is because of all the people who continue to resist what family and others are telling them outside school because they are still motivated to keep up in the popularity contest of having political views/loyalties that won't get them ridiculed in academic circles.

2) Although people don't like the Democrats, they don't really like/trust the GOP either; so the thing that weighs them in favor of voting for a Democrat are things like electing a black president. In electing Obama, the hope was that racism could be overcome and put in the past. Obviously that didn't work, but the Democrats gave people an opportunity to try, so they did.

The same didn't work for Hillary and getting a female president elected because people are terrified of feminism and they felt like they already did a big thing by electing a black president.

So Trump came along and basically told people that they weren't really benefiting from a Democrat administration, and he told blacks, "what do you have to lose," and so many black probably voted for him for that reason, including the fact that they don't want to be a one-party race because that feels like just another form of stereotyping.

The only way anyone is going to 'save' politics is if people start trying to satisfy the ideologies of both parties in the policies they propose. Without achieving policies that can pass both parties, there will never be more than an impasse. There is no way for either party to gain so much unilateral power that it can force its views against the resistance of dissent. Why people keep acting like they can if they can just get enough votes and support, I don't understand; except that it is a way of making money off people who are dumb enough to contribute money in the belief that if enough money gets contributed to their party, it will enable them to squelch any dissent/resistance that stands in their way.

Buying majoritarian dictatorial power in this way is not how democracy is supposed to work and it is amazing that so many people complain about institutions such as the electoral college that prevent it.

@InfraBlue,
That's assessment isn't reflected thusly in the 2016 election (statistically speaking):

How Groups Voted in 2016

I guess from your subjective point of view? There could be (or should be) less Millenials supporting Trump than there are reflected in the 2016 election.

You assume these polls accurately reflect actual votes.

You might not consider that people have others breathing down their necks asking how they vote in order to ridicule, chastise, and otherwise discriminate against them for voting 'wrong.'

For that reason, many people may lie and say they voted for Clinton to avoid the ridicule/discrimination, while they actually voted for Trump in the booth.

Look at how the culture of ridicule against Trump works. Who would admit they voted for him if they did? If Democrats want to know who people actually vote for, they should stop ridiculing dissent and political choice and start respecting it.
