The key political divide in the United States is not between parties or states; it is between generations. The millennial generation (those aged 18-35) voted heavily against Donald Trump and will form the backbone of resistance to his policies. Older Americans are divided, but Trump's base lies among those above the age of 45 . On issue after issue, younger voters will reject Trump, viewing him as a politician of the past, not the future.According to exit polls, Trump received 53 percent of the votes of those 45 and older, 42 percent of those 30-44, and just 37 percent of voters 18-29 . In a 2014 survey, 31 percent of millennials identified as liberals, compared with 21 percent of baby boomers (aged 50-68 in the survey) and only 18 percent of the silent generation (69 and above).While Trump is enticing the older generation with one last fling with fossil fuels, the young will have none of it.
