On the whole millenials are still strongly Dem leaning.

"On election day, Hillary Clinton won the youth vote (55 percent) while Donald Trump only garnered the support of 37 percent of the millennial electorate."

Come 2018 I would not be surprised to see support back over 60 (as it was in 2012). A lot of young people stayed home or got peeled off. I don't think they'll make that mistake again (so far special elections have backed this up.

Polls are meaningless. Like I told a politician once, you don't know how people are going to vote until after they've voted. Keep in mind that Trump got in despite all polls to the contrary.

Luckily all the special elections since 2016 have averaged +18 for Ds. The generic ballot has them at just +8 so Ds have actually been out performing the polls.

Keep in mind that while Hillary won the popular vote by over 3m, she only lost the electoral college by <80k. It won't take much movement to swing the EC back to Dems. In fact time itself will do a lot of the work. Trumps voters are dying faster than Hillary's (due to older voters skewing R) and are being replaced by a cohort that skews D.

The relative increase in Millenials self identifying as far right isn't because more millenials are conservative, but that conservatives have moved further and further right so there are less and less identifying as moderately conservative.
IOW, "Millennials aren't trending conservative because Millennials are trending conservative."

Wrong, asshole. A = A. Millennials are trending conservative = Millennials are trending conservative. Ignore that, though, because as long as you continue to ignore that fact, that fact will continue to destroy your idols in election after election. So by all means, don't acknowledge it. Acknowledging it might start you on the path to doing something about it.

Were you seeing tracers when you typed that? Was the carpet breathing at you?

Actually, what you said was:

he relative increase in Millenials self identifying as far right isn't because more millenials are conservative, but that conservatives have moved further and further right so there are less and less identifying as moderately conservative.
Which means that more millennials now identify as even further right than before. Which means that millennials are now trending right. Ya dumb, dirty hippie.
