Reason-Rupe Poll: Millennials Don't Like to Be Nannied


First published on July 10, 2014. Original text below:

"Millennials don't like to be nannied," states Reason-Rupe polling director Emily Ekins. "They opt for personal choice over government regulation across a number of products and activities that many governments have already banned or have sought to ban."

Two-thirds of millennials favor same-sex marriage. The poll also found that a majority of Republican millennials said the government should allow same-sex marriage.  

"This is actually a part of a broader socially liberal shift we're finding among young Republicans," states Ekins. "In fact, four in 10 identify as being socially liberal."

When it comes to marijuana legalization, 57 percent of millennials approve of lifting the ban on pot. Sixty-seven percent said that people should be allowed to smoke e-cigarettes in public.
