Millennials will represent nearly 40% of the voting population by the year 2020, and the race is on to win this crucial voting demographic.
To my eye, neither party has worked particularly hard to woo young people in the past. Democrats have pandered to them and Republicans have barely even acknowledged them.

He's owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Magnolia Pictures and Landmark Theaters, star of ABC's investor competition show "Shark Tank" and chairman of HDTV network AXS TV and sold his first company, MicroSolutions, for $6 million.
