Walking contradictions: Poll shows Millennials don’t know what they believe

A new poll released by Harvard University on Thursday reveals that millennials don’t really know what they believe when it comes to politics.

On foreign policy, a majority of millennials — 60 percent — support sending ground troops to fight the Islamic State, but only 15 percent would even consider joining the military to for the war. A whooping 62 percent said they would definitely not join.

When it comes to the direction of the nation, millennials are generally as upset the rest of the nation. A mere 17 percent of young people believe that the nation is headed in the right direction, while 44 percent of the country think the nation is headed in the wrong direction.

Nonetheless, they aren’t that critical of President Obama who’s lead the nation for nearly a decade. Obama received a 50 percent favorable rating — most blame the Republican congress who have just a 19 percent favorability rating.

Unsurprisingly, most millennials are not Republicans or conservatives. Just 21 percent claim to be a member of the GOP  versus 36 percent who are Democrats and 40 percent who are independents. 33 percent are conservatives , compared to 39 percent are liberals and 25 percent who are moderates.
