Jermaine Anderson keeps going back to the same memory of Donald Trump, then a candidate for president of the United States, referring to some Mexican immigrants as rapists and murderers.That Trump is undeniably the nation's 45th president doesn't sit easily with young Americans like Anderson who are the nation's increasingly diverse electorate of the future, according to a new poll. A majority of young adults – 57 percent – see Trump's presidency as illegitimate, including about three-quarters of blacks and large majorities of Latinos and Asians, the GenForward poll found.A slim majority of young whites in the poll, 53 percent, consider Trump a legitimate president, but even among that group 55 percent disapprove of the job he's doing, according to the survey.Trump routinely denies that and says he captured the presidency in large part by winning states such as Michigan and Wisconsin that Clinton may have taken for granted.Overall, just 22 percent of young adults approve of the job he is doing as president, while 62 percent disapprove.Young whites are somewhat more likely to have unfavorable than favorable views, 47 percent to 39 percent."I do not like him as a person," says Gallardo of Trump. She nonetheless voted for Trump because she didn't trust Clinton.
