NY Times created a visual based on a survey conducted by Harvard University’s Institute of Politics. The results might reveal unexpected priorities of millennials. Generally millennials are regarded as concerned most about social issues such as climate change and immigration. The survey shows that lowering unemployment and health costs as the domestically most important issues. In fact climate change and immigration policy scored the lowest of the domestic issues, followed closely by reducing big money in elections. In a time period where education is prioritized, the millennials put little emphasis on building a world-class educational system, while at the same time being energized by president Obama’s push to address student loans. I don’t really know what to make of all the data as the Public Religion Research Institute survey of millennials places the top three domestic issues as Jobs and unemployment, Federal deficit, and Education. What is clear is that jobs are important to millennials in both surveys.
