CBS 19 acquired the election map of 2016. Donald Trump won some states like Wisconsin, which known to be usually Democrat. Compared to if millennials only voted it evident that, Clinton would have won by a landslide. 

The 'millennial map' shows how Hillary Clinton would have 504 electoral votes, versus Trump's 23 votes. Only five out of the 50 states would be labeled Republican.
