Does the So-Called Millennial Generation Have a Rendezvous with Destiny?

The Seattle Times reports Michael Dudley is the son of a preacher man. He's a born-again Christian with several family members in the military. He's voting for Obama. Many traditional younger GOP evangelicals are no longer identifying with the Republican party.

The so-called millennial generation, roughly late teens to early 30s are part of the so-called millennial generation. Bob Herbert writes in the New York Times that this is the generation that's in danger of being left out of the "American Dream." This generation is faced with doing less well than their parents and that economic uncertainty is playing a huge role in forming their views of government and politics.

In 1974 the average income for men in their 30s was $40,000 (using today's inflation-adjusted dollars) - today that amount is $35,000.

According to The Fourth Turning by William Strauss and Neil Howe first published in 1997.
