Kristen Soltis Anderson: Millennials and Gen Z on Trump, the Left, and Big Government


Kristen Soltis Anderson is a pollster, author, and political analyst. In her second conversation with Bill Kristol, Anderson analyzes the latest data on the political, social, and cultural attitudes of the two youngest voting generations, “Millennials” (ages 23-38 in 2019) and “Generation Z” (ages 14-22 in 2019). According to Anderson, both of these generations continue their leftward political trajectory—a trend, she asserts, has accelerated during the presidency of Donald Trump. Anderson shares her perspective on what this data means for American politics in the short and medium term. Finally, Kristol and Anderson discuss how Republicans might broader their appeal to younger voters.

    This was interesting. 

    Depressing, but interesting.

    This is a grim perspective, but one that is very likely true. If, as Soltis Anderson says, the Millenials come out in force, we could very well see a massacre in 2020. If her data is correct on the political views of this group, and I have very little reason to doubt it, Trump could easily go down to a very nasty defeat. Imagining him continuing his tweet storms and appearing on FoxNews following such a defeat is almost as unpalatable as seeing one of the leftist buffoons sitting in the Oval office.
