Millennials Take Over as Biggest Generation For the first time since the late 1940s, Baby Boomers are not the biggest generation. Millennials have stolen that crown. The shift happened somewhere near 2012, so it’s no coincidence that 2012 was the first year since 1976 that Baby Boomer voters picked the losing candidate in a presidential election. Boomers and Millennials differ in many ways, and those differences are changing America.
