“When candidates’ personalities are a bigger issue than their policy, and when trust on major issues is split between the two parties, Gen Z is left without direction. We are politically homeless, with conservative youth pushing the party further toward populism and liberal youth pushing further toward a systematic “revolution.” We recognize the need for change, but the two parties are pushing us further away from their target base with their own decision-making. The good news for both Democrats and Republicans is that our vote remains up for grabs. The bad news for Americans is that they are realizing this and turning into full-fledged pandering machines to harness our vote.” (05/13/24)
