MTV News has learned that millennials are not only taking over their generation, they’re becoming the most influential generation in history.
According to new data from the Pew Research Center, millennials are now the fastest growing generation in American history.
“The first time we did this, we were just at the start of the Internet,” said Dr. Janna Gartner, lead researcher at Pew Research.
“It was just a little bit like that ’90s TV show when they would ask you questions about ‘Where are you from?’
You didn’t have any idea what you were going to be asking and you didn’t know what you would be saying back to them.
We were the first generation of Americans that was actually able to talk about it, and I think that is a really powerful thing for the country.”
The Pew Research study, which analyzed data from a nationally representative sample of 1,000 people from May 2015 to March 2016, found that Millennials have now become the most important generation in U.S. history.
In addition to making up more than 50 percent of the U.K. population, they account for more than 40 percent of all Americans.
“We know they are taking over the world, they are going to dominate the world in the next 30 years,” Gartners said.
“Millennials have done something that no other generation of American has done, which is to create a kind of political, cultural and technological environment in which they can actually be more influential than their parents and grandparents.”
The most influential Americans in history, according to Pew, are (1) Abraham Lincoln, (2) Abraham Roosevelt, (3) Winston Churchill, (4) Thomas Edison, (5) Franklin Roosevelt, and (6) John F. Kennedy.
These are some of the most famous people in history and their impact is not limited to the U, but the world.
(2) Winston G. Churchill, (7) John Kerry, (8) Henry Kissinger, (9) Martin Luther King Jr., (10) Martin Scorchingham, (11) Warren Harding, (12) Lyndon Johnson, (13) William Jennings Bryan, and (14) James Earl Ray.
They also include (15) George Wallace, (16) Robert Kennedy, (17) Henry Wallace, (18) Lyndon Johnson, , Bill Clinton, Robert Kennedy, and Jimmy Carter.
(19) Barack Obama, Jimmy Biden, Joe Biden, (20) Bill Gates, James Baker, Ronald Reagan, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and (21) John F. Kerry.
These are just a few of the top ten influential people in U,S history.
But not all are as influential.
According to the study, only 6 percent of Americans aged 18 to 34 are considered influential.
That is up from 5 percent in 2015.
This year, Gartnor also notes that the top 10 most influential millennials are Brent Budowsky (Chairman, House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform), John Boehner (Speaker of the House, Senate Committee on Foreign Relations), Barbara Lee (House Minority Leader, Democratic National Committee), Drew Hammill (Chair of the National Governors Association), Brad Sherman (Chairperson of the California Republican Party), Cynthia Lummis (Chairwoman of the Democratic National Campaign Committee), and Mark Zuckerberg.
The top 10 influencers in America are Lincoln, Roosevelt, Churchill, King, JFK, Ford, McGovern, Lynda Lee, Martin Luther King, Warren Harding, Kennedy, William Johnson, Tucker Carlson, Cory Booker, Paul Kavanaugh, Elizabeth Hockney, Hillary Warren, Ted Schumer, John Gonzales, Betsy Ford), Jared Dorsey (President and CEO, Facebook), Joe Dionne (President and Chief Operating Officer, Drones), Erik Jensen (Chief Executive Officer, Vox Media), Justin Pizzolatto (Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President, Amazon) and Tim McAfee (CEO and Founder, The E-commerce Business).
“It’s kind of like the internet of things,” Gartsner said.
“You could look at all the tech companies and they have all this new technology, but you know the majority of the time they are making things that are just kind of on the shelf.
And the internet is kind of the internet, but they’re not using the internet to make things, they use the internet as a way to make products.
The internet is just one of the many things they use
