Millennial Mayhem: Most young people are liberal, pro-marijuana and view the term 'millennial' unfavorably

Fusion recently polled 1200 people aged 18-35 to ask about their political views. Today’s young whippersnappers say the economy, debt, and spending matter the most to them.

But numbers only tell part of the story – and it’s not really a millennial trend piece without a little navel-gazing – so we got a millennial and his dad to talk about their differences. We also take a look at what just might be the GOP’s most patronizing political ads (so far).
