Will millennials head to the polls and actually vote this November?

An online survey reveals that the enthusiasm about the election amongst millennials has reached it's lowest low just a few weeks before the election.

The survey of 1,020 adults between 18 and 34 years old taken by Ipsos Public Affairs shows that 68% of those who are likely to vote support Hillary Clinton, and only 20% are likely to vote for Donald Trump.

The Republican candidate hit historic lows after the first two presidential debates. Those surveyed said he looked less presidential, credible and trustworthy.

Among Trump supporters, the main reason given for backing him is to keep Clinton out of the White House, same goes for Clinton supporters in equal numbers, they're voting against Trump.

At the beginning of the year 37% of the millennials said their vote didn't matter, now 46% feel that way. Yet 8 out of 10 say they have a responsibility to go to the polls.

Two thirds of those who don't plan to vote say it's because quote "they don't like the candidates."
