  • US President Donald Trump

The survey by GenForward, conducted by the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago with the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, found that 57 percent of adults between 18-30 years old-including three-quarters of black Americans and a large portion of Latinos and Asians-see Trump's presidency as illegitimate.

Responses were varied as to what made Trump's presidency seem illegitimate.

The Gen-Forward survey of people 18 to 30 years old suggests that 57 percent of young adults see Trump as illegitimate.

The poll also found that young adults across all races and ethnicities disapprove of Trump's performance as president and believe that the country is on the "wrong track". Young Asian-American adults reported feeling similarly with only 36% of them saying that they believe Trump is legitimate. Young people of color are especially anxious. "Only 39% of whites share this view".

Large numbers of Millennials report having been politically active during the first 50 days of the Trump administrations. Political engagement has taken place largely online and in opposition to, rather than in support of, President Trump.

Only 28 percent of whites approve of Vice President Pence however as opposed to 29 percent who approve of President Trump. Fifty-three percent of young whites consider it legitimate.

A Gallup poll released Monday morning showed that Trump continues to break records across all age groups with his historic unpopularity. The margin of sampling error for all respondents is plus or minus 4 percentage points.
