â€œMillennials donâ€™t like to be nannied,â€ states Reason-Rupe polling director Emily Ekins. â€œThey 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.â€
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.
â€œThis is actually a part of a broader socially liberal shift weâ€™re finding among young Republicans,â€ states Ekins. â€œIn fact, four in 10 identify as being socially liberal.â€
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.
