Millennials Feel Manipulated

Young people are apathetic to politics not only because they are distrustful of politicians and the media that covers their antics, but also, in part, because they feel manipulated.  It has become a rather common belief that politicians will say whatever they need to say to get elected.  One could say this desperation for votes is due to the path of a career politician - one who is dependent on the taxpayer dollar and ignorance.  In reality there are multiple factors that have led to this disconcerted feeling of young voters toward the politicians vying for their votes, but that is something that should be a topic for further discussion.

In the meantime, candidates may have trouble just getting Millennials to come to the voting booth, let alone vote for them if they do.  Millennials are an untapped voting resource that candidates need to take special care to impress as this voting group has the potential to swing this election IF they use their voting power.
