41 percent of white millennials voted for Trump

This article says it was because of racial resentment and they thought Trump would help them economically.

"A white millennial with a high school education and strong perception that whites are losing ground to other groups through no fault of their own was almost certainly a Trump voter."

Well, I think that has changed since the election. Many more millennials are against Trump now, as seen in Virginia and Alabama.

Interesting article.

7. But they went big for Doug Jones

 

According to exit polls, Jones won voters aged 18 to 29 by 60% to 38%. This was a dramatic turnaround from the 2012 election, when Barack Obama lost Alabama voters aged 18 to 29 to Mitt Romney by four percentage points.
