Did big government loving Gen Z voters crush the red wave? It’s complicated…

A left-wing pollster believes that Republicans failed to achieve a red wave or tsunami on Tuesday specifically because of Gen Z voters between the ages of 18 and 29.

Indeed, according to John Della Volpe, the director of polling for the Institute of Politics at the Harvard Kennedy School, had America’s youngest citizens not erupted forth on Tuesday from their parents’ basements, there “WOULD have been a Red Wave.”

“One thing I know already. If not for voters under 30 … tonight WOULD have been a Red Wave. … #GenZ did their job,” Volpe tweeted late Tuesday evening.

Included with the tweet was CNN exit poll data showing that young Americans voted overwhelmingly in favor of Democrats.


Why would young Americans be so pro-Democrat? Probably because of youthful ignorance coupled with brainwashing and indoctrination by both their left-wing teachers and the demonstrably left-wing establishment press.

The fact is that most people seem to start out as liberals and convert to conservatism over time as they enter the real world and start paying bills.

With this in mind, one critic responding to Volpe’s tweet argument suggested that perhaps “it’s time for parents to cut their children lose and let them pay for their college, clothes, food, healthcare, gas, car payments and car insurance.”

That way these naïve children would be forced to come face-to-face with the high-tax policies and overregulation they’re supporting by voting for Democrats.

Others say the best solution would instead be to “learn how to coddle and manipulate” the youth just as Democrats have been doing for ages.

But not everybody agrees with Volpe’s premise. Some believe he’s oversimplifying things by not factoring in every other related factor, including but not limited to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, all the mail-in-voting and ballot harvesting, the withholding of campaign funds, any possible voter fraud, and more.

“Too much credit to the Gen Z age group. Trying to distract from all the forms of fraud mainly at this point multiple day counts. As Biden said. It matters who counts the votes. This statement was absolute truth,” one critic wrote.

“18-29 cohort was 12% of the electorate this week. In 2020, they were 17% of the electorate. Dems only did 4-points better with them Tuesday. It’s more complicated than this pollster is pretending it is,” another added.


Dovetailing back to Volpe’s analysis, he actually predicted this would happen a week ago.

“I’m not sure whether we’ll see a red wave or a blue wave in a couple of weeks. I am positive we will see a Gen Z wave, especially in the battleground states,” he said on MSNBC.


Many prominent left-wingers appear to agree with his assessment, including gun control zealot David Hogg and far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.


But will Gen Z be able to “save” Democrats again in 2024? That remains to be seen …
