A new poll from USA Today/Rock the Vote shows 34% of millennials have a positive view of the alt-right.

From USA Today:
The online poll of 1,299 young adults, including an over-sample of minorities, was taken Oct. 21-24 by Ipsos Public Affairs. The survey has a credibility interval, akin to a margin of error, of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

The alt-right movement, which includes groups on the far right, has gained attention recently because of the support for Donald Trump by some white supremacists and anti-Semites. But it is much less well-known among Millennials. Nearly half of those surveyed, 45%, say they don't know enough about the alt-right to have an opinion of it, compared with just 8% who say that of Black Lives Matter.

Among those who express an opinion, 34% say they have a favorable opinion of the alt-right, 21% an unfavorable one.

Among whites, the favorable-unfavorable divide is 33%-19%. Among African Americans, it is 31%-27%. Among Hispanics, 46%-23%. Among Asian Americans, 37%-23%.

"I don't see much about the alt-right but what I have seen is positive," says Samuel Watkins, 19, of Lima, Ohio. "I feel like they're getting a good message across."
Other polls have shown young people are shifting hard-right as the establishment has been dominated and controlled by leftists for 60 years who've created nothing but failure.
