Gen Z

Carl Smith at Governing:

In Brief:
  • Gen Z and millennial voters are on their way to becoming the majority of the voting population.
  • In 2026, Gen Z will become the first majority nonwhite generation.
  • Some think these trends could benefit Democrats, but researchers find that the life challenges young voters face make them care more about policy than party.
A survey published in February by the Public Religion Research Institute and the Brookings Institution found that more than 5 in 10 Republicans believe the U.S. should be “a strictly Christian" nation. Nearly as many Gen Zers and millennials say that they have no religious affiliation at all.
