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.

Maybe 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. Time to show them why it’s important to be conservative when it comes to money!

Gen z has been sheltered by their parents who they resent and do not see the connection between their yearly new i- phones and their parents paychecks. The Republicans need to learn how to coddle and manipulate them like the Dem’s. It’s pretty easy, give them someone to hate.

I do believe this happened. Gen Z want government to give them life needs, and they want to work as little as possible and take off as much as they want. Now we can always find exceptions but these individuals are too busy working 2-3 jobs to go vote. #GenZVoterTurnout

Tell me brainwashing in schools isnt happening. And their degrees prove they’re too stupid to see it.

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.

Absolutely, due to abortion propaganda. By the way, unless Republicans develop a serious mail-in voting strategy like the Democrats, we will never win a general election again.
Same-day voting can never compete with the Democrat’s weeks and weeks of collecting ballots!

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.
The role of young people in this election cannot be understated. Turnout delivered on many of these races.
By 2024, Millennials & Gen Z voters will outnumber voters who are Baby Boomers and older, 45/25.
We are beginning to see the political impacts of that generational shift. https://t.co/5U7AcMIgJi

Gen Z voters just saved Democrats ass.
Don’t forget it.

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