As Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate go head-to-head, millennials, a term used to classify young adults between the ages of 18-35 years of age are not feeling like either one can “Make America Great Again.”
Actually the opposite.
A quarter of this youth group would prefer for a giant meteor to strike and destroy humanity then having to bare witness to either one serving out a presidential term, UMASS/Lowell Odyssey study released on Tuesday stated.
Why a giant meteor? Because there’s one running, at least on Twitter:

It’s a very entertaining follow.
What do you have to lose?

Guaranteed to defeat ISIS.

Twenty-six percent of this group would favor a lottery to select a presidential elect over either one of the current choices.
As far as the numbers can tell, Clinton is leading the real estate mogul by a 3 to 1 margin among the 18-35 year old age range that will most likely be voting twenty days from now.
The co-director of UMass-Lowell’s Center for Public Opinion, Professor Joshua Dyck said in a statement:
“We do not take our respondents at their word that they are earnestly interested in seeing the world end, but we do take their willingness to rank two constitutional crises and a giant meteor ahead of these two candidates with startling frequency as a sign of displeasure and disaffection with the candidates and the 2016 election.”
On Wednesday, Oct. 19th, both presidential candidates faced off in their final debate which aired across the nation, but left many questions unanswered.
