Millennials Favor Big Government

From Matthew Yglesias...

The left-wing tilt of the under-30 cohort is sometimes glossed as primarily driven by cultural issues. Millenials are, for example, much more favorable to gay rights claims. But as Ruy Teixeira points out it extends considerably beyond that to economic questions as well:


I assume this kind of thing will be pretty heavily shaped by assessments of what actually takes place in the Obama years.

This graph shows data for a different question.  Marc Ambinder points out that it's not a 78%-22% split, but instead it's a 60%-27%.  Still a wide margin of millennials in favor of big government solutions.
