Poll: After education, young people diverge on 2016 issues


WASHINGTON (AP) — When it comes to picking a new president, young people in America are united in saying education is what matters most. But there's a wide split in what else will drive their votes.

For African-American adults between the ages of 18 and 30, racism is nearly as important as education. For young Hispanics, it's immigration. And for whites and Asian-Americans in the millennial generation, it's economic growth.

The results from the new GenForward poll highlight big differences among young Americans who often are viewed as a monolithic group of voters — due in no small part to their overwhelming support for President Barack Obama during his two campaigns for president.
