COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Most polls show Bernie Sanders is the overwhelming favorite of millennials — voters between the ages of 18 and 35. But some young voters are taking a serious look at Donald Trump as the primary season rolls on.

Twenty-five percent of people under 30 in a Harvard Institute of Politics poll say they would vote for Trump if he faced off against Hillary Clinton in the fall.

Sanders still has the clear advantage among millennials. The same Harvard poll shows 80 percent of young people with a very favorable opinion of Sanders would vote for Clinton if he drops out.

But many young voters are united in their anger and disillusionment, and both Trump and Sanders have tapped into that subset of voters.
