A brand new poll conducted by Zogby Analytics in late May/early June reveals that Millennials are truly developing their global citizenship. About half (51%) of the 1,019 18-34 year old smart phone owners told us that they are likely "to live and work in a foreign country at some point in" their lives. That includes 68% of those 18-24 and 47% of the 25-34 year old group. The same percentage (51%) say that they "would like" to do just that - again more of the younger than older group of Millennials (64% to 47%).

Two in three told us that they are "social networkers", equal percentages of both age sub-groups. What is striking to me are just how connected these First Globals are to the rest of the world. Two in five (39%) say they their social network includes a person or persons from Asia. About half 48% have someone from Europe, 35% from Latin America. In both instances, the older and younger groups are about equal. However, while 28% of the whole group have someone in their network from East or Central Asia, younger First Globals are more likely than older ones 31% to 26%. The differences are even greater for North Africa/Middle East (25% overall, 31% younger, 22% older); Russia (21% overall, 27% younger, 19% older), and Sub-Saharan Africa (18% overall, 25% younger, 16% older).

More than three in four (77%) say it is important to "live a life that makes a difference for other people in the world" and two in three (67%) say it is important to "work for an entity or yourself and have the opportunity to volunteer to a cause you believe in". In both instances the two age sub-groups are nearly even.

Overall, one in three (31%) "Have contributed or volunteered to a charity outside the United States in the past two years "- 38% of 18-24 year olds, 28% of the 25-34 age group. This includes a written check (54%), an online contribution (54%) and a text donation (28%).

At least seven in ten say that when they purchase something they care about its environmental impact (76%), that the labor to produce it is covered by fair trade practices (73%), and the human rights record of the country in which it was made (68%). In a further example of what we at Zogby polling have seen over the years, younger Born Again Christians are equally concerned.

The world is a far different place for them than it is for other age cohorts. By a factor of two to one, these First Globals see the United States more as a "declining empire" (46%) than as the world's "sole superpower" (25%). In addition, they are slightly less inclined to agree that the U.S. has the "right to intervene in other countries' problems" - 36% agree, but 39% disagree. And just three years ago when we asked in our Zogby polls if they believed that "American culture is inherently superior to the culture" of the people of several regions, the range was 41% to 47% who agreed, in this most recent poll shows that range to be only 24% to 36% who agree - 24% the culture of Western Europe, 27% Eastern Europe, 29% South Asia and East Asia, 30% Southeast Asia and China, 33% Latin America, 35% Sub-Saharan Africa, and 36% North Africa and the Middle East.

When I was in Tunisia in 2011 working on the elections that year, I found that young Tunisians were not only very proud of the role they played in toppling their dictator but also how much they hoped that young Americans were watching what they were doing and pleased with their cause. In this latest poll, when we asked American Millennials "if the young people of the Arab Spring in Tunisia and Egypt were fighting for the same rights and principles you believe in", 41% say they agree and only 14% disagree.

In other words, America's Millennials - our First Globals - are very aware, more engaged, more networked, and more empathetic to the people of the rest of the world.
