The main reason millennials give for backing Clinton is "to keep Donald Trump out of the White House." And the top reason Trump backers cite for their decision is to keep Clinton from winning.

A majority of millennial voters said the first debate made Trump seem less presidential, credible and trustworthy.

Only 47 percent of millennial women support Clinton, and 18 percent support Trump. Another combined 18 percent back either Johnson or Stein.

Among men, 65 percent back Clinton and only 6 percent combined support third-party candidates.

Millennial voters said jobs and the economy were the most important issues on which the next president should focus.

The survey was conducted by Ipsos from Oct. 11 to 13 among 1,020 adults ages 18 to 34. The margin of error is 3.5 percentage points.

A poll conducted earlier this month among millennial voters showed the Democratic nominee was up 25 points among millennials in 11 swing states.
