November 2, 2016: Millennials Make their Mark!
Tonight, we shine a light on what has been called one of the most powerful generations heading to the ballot box next week. Millennials, now a group close to 80 million in number, could play a crucial role in electing the next president… that is if they show up to the polls. In 2008, 51 percent of millennials cast their vote for the president, and in 2012, that number only decreased. This year, things might be looking up for this generation, as more and more get involved in politics spanning all walks of American life. A few weeks after the votes were counted in 2012, millennials David and Jack Cahn packed their bags and began a two-year road trip across the country to figure out how their peers would reshape America’s future. After more than 10,000 interviews, their journey led them to us, and tonight, they are sharing the findings from their trip in their new book, When Millennials Rule.

People behind Captain Morgan's Rum think that should change and have started a petition. With over 75.4 million millennials in the country, is it possible one of them is qualified enough to be president? Director of PR and Entertainment for Diageo, Jim Sias, author of "When Millenials Rule," Jack Cahn, founder of the Ivey Key, Jae Gardner and founder of Pace public relations Annue Scranton tackle the question.
