Trump also continues to be unpopular among millennials.
The survey found that 75 percent of young voters have an unfavorable view of the GOP nominee, while 54 percent have an unfavorable view of Clinton.
“Millennial voters continue to despise Trump,” the survey concluded. “Large majorities of millennials find his actions deeply offensive and few prefer his policy positions.”
The NextGenClimate online poll surveyed a total of 1,652 millennials and 902 likely millennial voters from Aug. 24 to 30.
