You know our country is in turmoil when the youth are agitated enough to vote in an election. 45% of Generation Z (born between 1996-2015) plans to vote in this election compared to 27% last year. Between the coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement, young voters have become politically active.
This is good news for the Dems because 60% of Gen Z voters are Democrats and just 33% are Republicans. Hope! And, young people get their political information from social media (67%) and major news networks (62%).
Colleges should be guiding Gen Z voters to get registered and collect the information and documents they need to vote in November because this will be the first time many college students vote. The youth may just be what the Dems need to replace the current administration in the White House.
