Millennials may already match baby boomers in terms of their share of the American electorate, but a new poll reveals that only 32 percent of voters under 30 are “definitely” planning on watching the first presidential debate.

That’s compared to the 59 percent of voters over 65 who say they will “definitely” watch, the poll found.

After months of campaigning, the Economist/YouGov poll revealed that American adults hold diverse opinions on whether Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton or her Republican rival Donald Trump will perform better in the debate.

The poll surveyed 1,300 U.S. voters through web-based interviews from Sept. 18 to Sept. 19. The margin of error was 3.9 percentage points.
