And one other survey by the analysis group Ipsos confirmed that millennial Republicans maintain related positions as Democrats of the identical age on environmental points. In the video, a man sitting behind her chuckles at her put-down.
Swarbick later posted on Facebook that her retort had gotten some people upset.
