Poll: Support for free trade highest among millennials

YouGov’s latest research shows that Americans under the age of 30 are one of the only groups to generally say that free trade has been a good thing for the United States. 48% of under-30s say that free trade has been good for the country, something only 31% of all Americans agree with. Free trade has been a fixture of this age group’s existence, however, as even the oldest would have only been seven years old when North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) entered into force. The oldest Americans, those aged over 65, are the most hostile to free trade (39% to 23%).
