I find it funny how majority of the Trump protesters are millennials yet only 19% of millennials voted in the election.

This 19% couldn't help get their friends out to vote (who knows, might not have even voted themselves) so now they are out there throwing tantrums.

To clarify, the 19% was the millennial proportion of all people that voted, not the % of eligible millennials that voted.

The only estimate (from exit polls in 28 states) that I've seen is 50% turnout among millennials (in bold halfway down page) http://civicyouth.org/an-estimated-24-million-young-people-vote-in-2016-election/

Slightly different millennial definition though. Most define it as 18-35, but the results only included 18-29. Regardless, a significantly higher proportion than 19% of millennials voted in the election.

Good catch skål, although I'm guessing their turnout varied across states. If that turnout were lopsided in 'safe states' that wouldn't do much good.

Not to mention there's a portion of those "ineligible" that could have made themselves eligible had they registered in time.

"Turnout” is the percentage of age-eligible citizens who voted" Eligibility had nothing to do with registration status, just age.

True. Where youth voter turnout really mattered was the rust belt states that flipped to red (plus NC and FL). Haven't seen any state specific data for that yet.

I'm guessing youth turnout was extra depressed in those rust belt states or even more of them in favor of Trump, but we don't know yet.

Also my mistake on "eligible" didn't know how that got defined

So eligibility are people who are of age yet don't even register, and turnout is of those who registered who then voted?

Yes. Turnout = voted / (all that could have potentially voted) Many states have same day registration, like IA and MN.

On a state by state basis, you'll see registered voters used as the denominator if they don't allow same day registration. But for national turnout, you'll see census derived #s

It'll help liberals figure out the appropriate amount of blame to put on millennials rather than their horrible candidate.

I ain't liberal so I see it like this. If the Democrats don't stop placing blame on people instead of self reflecting then the 2018 midterms are going to the same way as the 2016 election.

I thought Obama did a better job than most of getting them to vote in '08.
