Interviews with 1,833 US young adults in February and March of 2017 in all 50 states found that majorities of all ethnic groups disapprove of President Trump.[i] Many question the legitimacy of his election, mistrusting the Russian intervention in the campaign. Their dislike leads a majority of them to oppose his policies online and express their views to public officials. Smaller percentages donated money and participated in a demonstration. A majority of people of color approved of protests against Trump, but only 47% of white respondents approved. The Millennials also dislike Vice-President Mike Pence. Their top concerns are about health care, education, racism and immigration, although white respondents don’t list racism in their top three issues: health care, the environment, and education.
