Gen Z’s political power: new data gives insight into America’s youngest voters

Gen Z voters turned out at historic rates in the recent midterm election. In fact, Gen Z and millennial voters achieved their highest rate of voter turnout in history with the exception of the 2018 election. A newly obtained post-election report on Gen Z conducted by the education advocacy organization, Murmuration, the Walton Family Foundation, and the public opinion firm SocialSphere sheds a light on what young voters are focused on as they cast their ballots in increasingly high numbers. The main findings of the report show that Gen Z voters want more information on political candidates, get their news mainly from social media, and their political loyalty remains open to change.
