.....considering that younger Americans have a more Progressive view than older generations, and few are for President Trump or want to be labeled 'Conservative'.

The only thing conservatives can do is be the ones raising the majority of young Americans from childhood. It all starts in the family unit and keeping in the tradition that once was the norm in America - responsible parents who are grounded enough in principles of morality so as to take action against the efforts of those who would ‘indoctrinate’ their children.   

“It takes a village”, but only one that is one deeply rooted  in the principles of conservatism.

Younger voters have been voting Democrat for decades but Trump won a larger share than Romney or McCain did which spells trouble for Democrats as the 18-30 age group continues to age and naturally becomes more conservative.

Hillary's numbers with the 18-30 year old group were much lower than Obama.

Trump won from increased numbers in the youth vote, Hispanic vote, whites who never voted or gave up voting and a very slight increase in the black vote.

How to appeal?  Trump's approval is going up among Hispanics, blacks and millennials now that they realize it's not the end of the world and Trump's approval is higher than Obama's at this point.

If we end illegal immigration and continue to improve the economy and end our endless wars, it does not look good for the future of the Democrat Party.

Now that the Dems are trying to move away from identity politics, they realized they have zero message.

They need to be made aware that illegals will be taking their jobs/education/tax dollars some day. It needs to be personalized for them to listen...

You have to talk to your children from the time they can understand.  When they inevitably learn the liberal talking points, keep on pointing out where and how it does not work.

With a millenial daughter, the biggest problems I have is on social issues.  She is a solid conservative except for things like the right to abortion, gay "marriage," transgenders.  They are still thinking with their hearts, not their brains.  She is firmly against illegal immigration or the funding of it.  She has felt a difficult job market.

She has been interested in the country and world since being a teen.  But many aren't. 

I will not give up on the issues we don't agree on!  Often maturity works some of it out.  A good relationship where they like to talk to you is the best way.

Good for you. All you can do is the best you can do. At some point they will reflect on your instruction later in life.

A friend of mine used to bring a wooden spoon when she had to take her 6 children to the store.

Just having it visible from her purse seemed to do the trick!
