In 2014, Gallup found that Baby Boomers, (born between 1946 and 1964), were skewed slightly Democratic by 2%. The Millennials, (born between 1980 and 1996), however, favor the Democratic Party by a 20-point margin. According to CNN, the boomer population peaked in 1999, with 78.8 million members. Pew Research put it in context; Millennials are expected to overtake Boomers in population in 2019 as their numbers swell to 73 million and Boomers decline to 72 million.
