More than half of Americans age 18 to 30 view Donald Trump's presidency as "illegitimate," according to a new poll.

The GenForward survey found that 57% of young adults don't consider Trump's presidency legitimate, including large majorities of young Americans of color: 74% of black respondents, 60% of Asian-American respondents and 71% of Latino respondents. A minority of white respondents, 47%, said the same, according to the poll.

The Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago conducted the poll in cooperation with the Associated Press–NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Only 22% of young adults approve of Trump's performance as president, while 62% disapprove.

The survey of 1,833 Americans age 18-30, conducted between Feb. 16 and March 6, has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.

It's the people who don't recognize the racism within themselves that can be the most damaging because they don't see it.

You're either super quick with these articles, or very very slow with posting @Morphine Prince

I can't say that I'd want you as my White House Press Secretary.

OT: Well, duh. Over 3 million people picked the other gal, and the Electoral college is seen as archaic. I just hope we can survive Trump and change to a popular vote scheme with ranked voting in my lifetime.

I'm white and I'm disgraced by some of my race's inability to understand the lives of anyone but white people. That's why this poll is at 47% for them 

I honestly feel more connected to minorities at this point in time

Just wait until they feel the $3.9 billion cut to the Pell Grant. That number will rise dramatically.
