America’s dominant “two party system” may be close to extinction.

A new Pew Research study shows that most “millennials” consider themselves politically independent.

Millennials are considered to be anyone between the ages of 18 through 33.

The study not only revealed that they have feel independent about politics, but that nearly 30 percent of them say that they are not affiliated with any religion.

According to reports, these statistics are near the highest level of political and religious disaffiliation recorded for any generation in the last quarter-century.

The study also found that millennials also seem to be avoiding marriage, seeing that only 26 percent of the group is currently married.

By that age range, 36 percent of generation-x, 48 percent of the baby boomers, and 65 percent of the silent generation were all married.

Although the millennial generation may claim they do not identify with a political party, most of them still tend to vote for democratic leaders.
