American youth plan to make their voices heard in record numbers this November. For example, 40% of young adults surveyed say they will “definitely” vote in the midterm elections. Also, 45% of young Americans in swing states are more likely to vote.
“Battleground state polling is far from settled, I’m not sure if we will see a Red Wave or Blue Wave on November 8 – but we will see a Gen Z Wave,” said IOP Polling Director John Della Volpe.
“Youth today vote at levels that far exceed millennials, Gen X, and baby boomers when they were under 30. Inspired by the Parkland students in 2018, sparked by fear about their future, the future of our country, and planet, Gen Z is ushering in a new era of sustained political engagement.”
