If there’s anything the Democrat Party is good at, it’s convincing young people it’s cool to support them.

Leftist influence dominates every cultural institution from the entertainment industry to Ivy League schools.

But a generational shift is underway that could threaten the Democrat stranglehold on young voters.

Gen Z is waking up to the reality of a Democrat-led government

Under the Biden administration, inflation has been wreaking havoc on the American people. 

The consumer price index began to rise slowly in 2021 before skyrocketing to over 8 percent in 2022. 

Biden claims to have gotten it under control. 

But the number hasn’t returned below 3 percent ever since. 

And it compounds every year.

Now Gen Z is waking up to the harsh reality. 

They will never be able to afford to make a better life for themselves than their parents had. 

Videos of Gen Z Americans complaining about inflation have been going viral in recent months. 

The latest shows a young man slamming the “uniparty” for not doing anything to address the cost of living in America. 

The man claimed that he makes “three times the federal minimum wage” but that doesn’t matter because the average one-bedroom apartment costs $1,800. 

Now it seems that the walls are closing in on the Biden administration.

Trump closing the polling gap with Biden ahead of November election

In a Harvard Youth Poll, Biden was put on notice by news that young voters are beginning to shift towards Donald Trump. 

Over one third of voters between the ages 18 and 29 said that they wished to return to the policies of the former administration. 

The same poll found a gap of 23 percentage points in the spring of 2020. 

The results in 2020 showed Biden ending with 24 percent of the vote for young voters. 

This year’s poll showed a narrowing gap of just 8 percentage points. 

Biden received support from 45 percent of the group.

The polling director for the Harvard Kennedy School weighed in on the dramatic shift.

“Make no mistake, this is a different youth electorate than we saw in 2020 and 2022, and young voters are motivated by different things,” said John Della Volpe. 

The executive director of the Institute of Politics (IOP) at Harvard explained what is happening.

“It’s time to get a man back into office that is going to lower our prices . . .”

Setti Warren, the executive director of the IOP sat down with Ari Hoffman to discuss the results. 

Warren cited the top concerns of all Americans as the reason for the changing hearts among young people. 

“Young people today have clear concerns about where our country is headed,” he explained. 

Warren went on to say that “from worries about the economy, foreign policy, immigration, and climate, young people across the country are paying attention and are increasingly prepared to make their voices heard . . .” 

Reuters conducted a similar poll in March and their responses were in line with the Harvard poll.

One Reuters interview with a 23-year-old indicated that there are innumerable reasons for young people to turn their back on Biden. 

“I cannot think of one thing that Trump did that upset me while he was in office. And now with Biden in office, there are countless things I disagree with,” Isayah Turner explained.

Another respondent said that “it’s time to get a man back into office that is going to lower our prices.”

The bottom line is, Biden is facing a reckoning in November if he can’t win back the hearts of young people.
