This is why I'm skeptical of 'Gen Z will be the most conservative generation' point I've been hearing, generations voting habits seem to be shaped who is President during their emerging years. Most Gen Zs will grow up with Trump as they reach voting age and he leave a lasting impression of the GOP.

The logic behind that point is based on YouTube comments and 4chan memes so...

The_Donald also has gone from 375,000 ---> 422,000 subscribers last we spoke.

Gen Z is truly shaping up to their destiny.

They are conservative in comparison to 18-24 year olds.  Considering that teens tend to have the same political opinion as their parents until they reach older.   I was a Bush supporting republican like my dad until i reached age 16 when the Iraq war and Bush's failures became indefensible(its also when my gender dysphoria came back sssshhhhhhhh)

Um, OK?

That's still less than the number of votes that Hillary received in my county. Statistically that is a meaningless figure.

There's also been a rise in Gen Z minorities supporting the alt right who call themselves the "alt white".

"Hey look I'm a Republican posting an article about a handful of students at some stupid private liberal arts college throwing a hissy fit over some dumb and trivial thing, this clearly proves that all college students are exactly like this and get upset over this dumb stuff."

Same logic.

And keep in mind that a good number of those 422k are probably bots or Russian trolls.

There's also been a rise in apolitical Gen Z teens who are considering supporting the alt right. They call themselves the "alt might?".

Has there been any polling on this or are we just projecting based on social media and online discussion boards? I know it's been discussed before, but I don't think 4Chan and Reddit are very appealing to teenagers nowadays, and their user base actually appears to be mostly immature 20-and 30-somethings.

Also, it would be nice if someone ran a poll of 15-25 year olds asking their opinions on New Left hobby horses like safe spaces and cultural appropriation, while also asking about views of the Alt-Right. I ask because hardcore New Left nonsense like having a "No Whites Day" on campus or shutting down a taco truck because it's run by white people is so ridiculous that I can't imagine even most #woke activists/hashtactivists have much time for it, and also because the actual hardcore Alt-Right can't be that big just going on things like membership in Alt-Right Facebook/Reddit groups, viewership of Alt-Right Youtube channels, and turnout at Richard Spencer's rallies.

So that small alt-rightt contingent is basically like the radicalized leftist hippies that turned the rest of their generation away from liberalism in the 1960's? Got it

C'mon guys. "Alt white" "Alt might?" "The_Donald increasing in subscriber count" are clearly joke posts.

It's hard to tell if you're joking or not, but you've been sounding the alarm on GenZ being Nazis ever since November even in the face of evidence against them being Trump cultists

I've only been on here since February so I think you're confusing me with someone else Tongue

But I have said in other posts that the Gen Z = Nazis trope was a joke.

Ah, ok. I don't know if Gen Z will necessarily be as Democratic as Millennials, but they're not really likely to be the saving grace for the GOP that the Fox News pundits thinks they'll be. Hillary crushed Trump in mock votes and polls since he's been in office among high schoolers have been disastrous for him
