Young Voters Not Swayed By Bill Clinton's History

America's youngest voters don't seem that interested in Bill Clinton's past with women. And that could be a source of frustration for Donald Trump.

The Republican presidential nominee is trying to make the former president's tabloid history and Hillary Clinton's role in it a key issue in the presidential race.

Millennials haven't embraced Hillary Clinton's candidacy. But polls find they overwhelmingly disapprove of Donald Trump.

Trump needs every vote he can find as Clinton has a clear national lead in preference polling less than a month until Election Day.

Most millennials don't have a conscious memory of Bill Clinton's presidency. Many say they know the stories of his impeachment after an affair with White House intern Monice Lewinsky. But they don't seem to hold his actions against his wife.
