Millennial voters have long been considered to be unstable, and this property could mid-term impact of this in the November elections.

A new survey from Public Religion Research Institute and The Atlantic, showed that only 28 percent of young adults ages 18-29 said they were “absolutely certain” to vote in the elections of 2018, Vox reported.

The same survey found that 74 percent of seniors who said more likely to vote Republican than millennials, they are “absolutely certain” about voting in the midterm elections. Vox described the data show that a “massive” generation gap in voting intention.

What’s more, the survey finds that only 15 percent of young adults describe themselves as consistent voters, compared to 60 percent of the seniors and 21 percent describe themselves as non-voters, in contrast to seven percent of the seniors.

Millennials “are volatile in relation to your participation in the election,” Dave Wasserman of the Cook Political report, told Vox. “You are the most likely voters are dropping out of the electorate.”

But these can be surveys, as little as the thousand-year-old voters.

A recent survey by the Associated Press and the University of Chicago, NORC found that 32 percent of young voters would certainly vote and 56 percent were likely to be, as Vox reported.

A further survey by Cosmopolitan magazine, and SurveyMonkey found that 48 percent of young voters were “absolutely sure”, they said that they would vote in the midterm elections.

Whatever happens, come November, if America is to face a red wave or blue wave, is still to be determined.

The PRRI/Atlantic survey finds that just 50 percent of Americans are “absolutely certain” about voting in the midterm elections, compared to 51 percent in the 2014 elections.

All can, only the status quo remains.
