Here's what the Electoral College map would look like if only millennials voted

A real-time Electoral College tracking map suggests not only a disappointing Election Day for presidential hopeful Donald Trump, but potential trouble down the road for the Republican Party he represents.

A Mic sneak peek at a new interactive map from SurveyMonkey, which goes public at 9 a.m. Tuesday, shows Democrat Hillary Clinton ahead not just overall in Electoral College projections, but with an overwhelming advantage among millennial voters.

A total of 270 Electoral College votes are required to capture the presidency.

In the 2016 election cycle, 69 million millennials are eligible to vote a number equal to that of baby boomers.

According to SurveyMonkey, which is offering mapping based on more than 30,000 interviews conducted since Oct. 8 and weighted by state-level voter demographics, Clinton dominates among the younger set.

"The data among millennials point to big and widespread advantages for Clinton heading into the final stretch. The challenges some Democrats feared she might face with young voters after a tough primary fight against Bernie Sanders haven't materialized," Jon Cohen, SurveyMonkey's chief research officer, said to Mic.

That's not all.

"Looking beyond 2016, the numbers among white millennials may be particularly troubling for Republican strategists," Cohen said, pointing to data that backs up longstanding fears about the future of the GOP in the absence of a successful effort to broaden its base.

"Trump is ahead in only 17 states among young white voters," Cohen noted.

"In addition to the headwinds the party faces among nonwhite voters of all ages, this deficit adds to the party's obstacles ahead."

After a scorching post-mortem conducted after Republican Mitt Romney's loss to President Barack Obama in 2012, the GOP made some effort to ramp up its outreach to nonwhite voters.

Apparently not helping achieve that goal: Trump's hardline stances on issues such as immigration and his much-questioned conduct toward women, coupled with GOP resistance to de-emphasizing wedge social issues such as abortion and marriage in order to attract next-generation Republicans.

In 2016's battleground states, according to data SurveyMonkey provided to Mic ahead of the full map release, the GOP may also be looking at trouble down the road as its base ages out unless the Trump phenomenon is a total aberration.

In Florida, for example, the RealClearPolitics polling average shows Clinton up just under 4 percentage points overall. However, SurveyMonkey shows Clinton up 24% with millennials, with a double-digit advantage even among those without a college education.

The RCP averages for Ohio show the candidates in a dead heat, with Trump slightly ahead. But SurveyMonkey has Clinton up by 13% among millennials there, leading in every demographic except among men, where the candidates are in a statistical tie.

And in Iowa, where RCP averages show Trump ahead by under 4 percentage points overall, Clinton bests the Republican among millennials by about twice that figure.

All that said, older voters have traditionally voted in higher numbers as a group than their younger counterparts for an array of reasons, so pre-election poll results don't necessarily guarantee final outcomes. And there's no question 2016 has been an unusual presidential cycle, to say the least, which has strained the utility of a lot of conventional political wisdom.

These new Electoral College test cases with millennials are a product of the shareable SurveyMonkey map's options to view state-level results in key brackets such as gender, age, race, income and education level.

The SurveyMonkey data will be updated daily through the Nov. 8 election. When the GOP will next dramatically update its play for new, younger voters remains to be seen.


Clinton has a nearly nationwide advantage over Trump with millennials.


Trump does better among white millennials, but still trails Clinton.

LOL! Al, you just don't get it. Just admit that your party sh_t the bed again and made a monumentally stupid choice. Had they followed the clear roadmap laid out for them they could have had complete control of everything for at least two years. The White House. The Senate. The Congress. The whole shebang to do whatever they want including their repeal and no replace plan for the ACA. THEY WERE SHOWN A CLEAR PATH TO EASY VICTORY AND COMPLETE CONTROL. Now they get Clinton. Could have had Kasich and complete control and it wouldn't even have been close. HOW DUMB AND GULLIBLE COULD REPUBLICAN PRIMARY VOTERS BE?????? Just a brutally dumb choice and now they can reap what they have sewn. Next time maybe they should worry more about winning than about bringing in know nothing idiot outsiders as their candidate.

MIND BOGGLINGLY STUPIDITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pretty strange statement, coming from a guy that told everybody here repeatedly in a past election that the best choice for GOP was John (Three percent) Huntsman. I hope 68 is not a political consultant, much less in the road map business.

Selecting a nominee that your voters refuse to support (like Kasich) is a good road map to nowhere. Thanks for the brilliant advice, but.....

If you hadn't paid attention all polls had Kasich wiping Clinton out in a general election and had Trump losing to her. So let's nominate the loser. Tell me Al, what would you rather have, President Kasich and full control of the House or President Clinton??? Your party are as dumb as rocks and this is the third election in a row where they have born that out. You will never admit it but your party, the ones who delivered us this sociopathic narcissist weirdo are brain dead and don't seem to care about winning. I am starting to think they like losing so they have something to b_tch about. I can't think of any other reasoning for their complete lack of common sense.

So by your reasoning, Democrats would have crossed over and voted for Kasich? When hell freezes over. That must be what you meant because it would have taken a lot of that, because Republicans certainly didn't support him. His support remained mired in single digits, he only won one State (Ohio) and was often running fourth or fifth.

Please don't tell me about attracting independents. Romney won independents handily and still got sent home because he couldn't get his own party to support him. That's how you win, not by concerns about the crossover vote, independents, or nominating a candidate Democrats recommend. You MUST win your base and win them BIG. That has to be your main concern if you want to win.

On a personal note, Kasich lost me when he continued to blather about "working together across the aisle, everybody getting along, compromise, blah, blah, blah." We all know the code for "compromise" is the Republicans caving in. Why do you think Democrats are so big on bi-partisanship and compromise? Because they know the GOP usually folds like a cheap tent. Who wouldn't want that?

I'd gladly take gridlock, and that's probably what we will get regardless of who wins.

If you haven't noticed, Clinton really isn't that popular, so yes there would have been crossover. But whatever, if the GOP wants to keep nominating Trump like candidates and keep losing elections, that's fine by me.

The majority of voters in this country have no party affiliation. Most of them vote for who they feel is the beast candidate. In the end, they are the people who decide the election, not the straight party voters. So yes, Kasich would probably have beaten Clinton.

No, maybe not Dems but certainly Independents hence the polling which had Kasich wiping Clinton's ass in the general. Do you not pay attention? I would have voted for Kasich in a heartbeat over Clinton had he been nominated and it would have been the 1st time I voted Republican in a general election. With Clinton's baggage he would have beat her easily and they would have had complete control.

How utterly dumb to choose the guy that every poll said would lose to her. It was clearly pointed out for them to see but they ignored Independents like myself and gave me no choice but to vote for the e-mail queen. At least she is mentally sane and knows some things unlike her dumb as wood opponent who has little knowledge of any of the issues, especially foreign policy and doesn't seem to want to learn anything.

People say he will surround himself with smart people but what good does that do when you have such an over the top narcissist that they never ever listens to anybody but themselve. Trump has smart people around him every day and never listens to any advice. He is a walking and talking disaster area and that is just the tip of the iceberg.

He is a phony businessman who started off life leading off of 3rd base and still had to get bailed out multiple times by his daddy along with the avoiding paying taxes. I could go on and on and on and on and on.

Kasich is a respectable man with a decent record and leadership qualities. Trump has zero leadership qualities unless you are talking dictatorship.

I have said enough. One of these days your party will wake up and smell the roses and realize how to win the White House back but at this rate there may never be another Republican president ever again. You are just lucky Clinton got the nod instead of Sanders because without Clinton's baggage Trump wouldn't even be nearly as close in this race as he is. It would have been game, set, match and you would have had an admitted socialist as POTUS.

You dumb dumbs could have had it all. Now you get nothing and I get to come here and watch you bitch for another 4 years.

You seem not to understand how Trump manipulated his way through a primary that started out with 17 candidates. That is the only way Trump got the nod. Had the primary started with just Kasich and Trump we would never be in this mess because Kasich would have beaten him easily.

All National polls the last couple months of the primary process showed Kasich destroying Clinton in the general and had Trump losing to her........and YES there would have been some DEM crossover and he would have won a higher percentage of the Independents like myself. The evidence was overwhelming and you dumb a_ses ignored the obvious and sh_t the bed.

60% of the people me included made it clear that we don't like Clinton and the idiots deliver us the one candidate we dislike more than her.

SO SO STUPID, MIND BOGGLING, DUMB, and IDIOTIC!!!

The Democrats have a yuuuge male voter problem. I know many of you guys put a lot of stock in 538. According to Silver if only males voted, Trump racks up 300 electoral votes.

Sadly for you, women have the right to vote. So your remark means little in the overall scheme of things.

Sadly for you, non-millennials have the right to vote as well. How's that stack up in the "overall scheme" of things?

Sadly for you, the polls say Clinton will win.

Sadly for us, you will continue to be a jerk after the election is over.

Once again alloak tries to compare apples and oranges while at the same time telling us they are all bananas. Brilliant work.

Thank you. Whether a vote is cast by a millennial, seasoned citizen, or middle aged person, they all count as one vote. Maybe they are all bananas after all.

Just stay with that and you'll be fine.

Every time I hear someone say that, I ask if they had ever heard of the newspaper headline "Dewey Defeats Truman".

Dewey was so far ahead of Truman in the polls that it was thought of as a forgone conclusion. Some newspapers had the headline and story already printed out, and had started distribution.

Truman's' voters didn't listen to the polls and, well, Truman won.

Those newspapers are now collectors pieces.

If I had to bet, I'd have to put my money on Hillary. However, it may be worth mention that the most accurate poll the last three elections (IBD) has Trump by a narrow margin. Interesting.

Hillary will win. Trump's pathway to 270 is next to impossible.
