Excerpt from TheBlaze

A recently released study by CIRCLE shows that young voters aged 18-34 came out more for President-elect Donald Trump than many originally had thought. While millennials still mostly came out in favor of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, her reliance on the millennial vote in this election did not serve her as well as she thought.
Our pre-election poll of Millennials ages 18-34 had Clinton 49% vs. Trump 28%, a 21-point preference for the Democratic candidate. The National Exit Poll suggests that the actual split in the election was 55% for Clinton to 37% for Trump (an 18-point gap) among youth aged 18-29.
