    Very interesting. I've been wondering how the younger generation (I'm in my early 30s, btw) will react/has reacted to the current political atmosphere. I remember being of voting age 10-12 years ago and thinking how much my views have changed.

    Also interesting how some generations can have sort of a political bend or stereotype.

    Typically, I would think the generations would get more liberal (at least slightly -- as I would call it moving the goal posts)...I would be interested if this turned out to be different...but it might make sense.

    Think...
    Silent - conservative lean
    Boomers - liberal lean
    X - conservative lean
    Y - liberal lean
    Z - ???

    AshOrLey- You do have a good point there! I think, fortunately, that many Generation Z members are seeing this and are doing a lot of fact-checking on both sides.

    Tery999- Interesting! I would love to do more research on Eastern European politics and see why that is the case.

    Nashvols- Yup! Me too, I think, honestly, Generation Z is already 75 million people in America (25% of the country I believe), so perhaps we could be one of the few generations that is split close to 50-50. I am quite curious! Judging by the poll, it appears many are socially liberal but economically conservative (like me :) ) , with conservative trailing right behind. So perhaps left or right libertarian :)

    I think there are a lot of younger (Ys and Zs) that are socially liberal (or tolerant) that are or have become at least someone economically conservative because of the social and economic climate right now.

    Me personally? I'm socially moderate (lean liberal with most personal freedoms, but I hold back on a few). Fiscally conservative, favor smaller, more efficient government, but am big on infrastructure spending (because it benefits commerce, primarily).

    I'd hesitate to call myself a Libertarian. Part of me identifies with that (political compass). I'm far from authoritarian, but Libertarian comes off as a little too laissez-faire to me. If there was a sub-type...I'd say pragmatic or even "bleeding-heart" Libertarian in some cases. That sounds a little sexier than moderate conservative or liberal...right?

    Hmm that seems interesting--looks like you share some views from both major parties.
    Haha I see, yes "bleeding-heart" sounds awesome, maybe I'll start using that too!!! :)

    I thought the Silents raised Gen X. Most people from that generation have stated that they had parents who grew up under the Depression and WW2.

    Gen X were raised by both Silents and Post-War Boomers. The average age at first birth was a lot lower in the 1960s and 1970s, most first-time mothers were in the 20-24 bracket, so an average oldest-child born in 1970 would've had a mother born in 1946-1950.

    Whoops, I keep forgetting that my parents are a lot older than most Gen Z parents (they were born in the late 1950s)

    That's true. Most first-time mothers did have children at an earlier age at that time, so yes Silents and some Post-War Boomers raised Gen X. Then, it began increasing in the late 70s where some first-time mothers would have kids around 30. This made many Post-War Boomers, most Joneses and some few Xers have Gen Y children, and raised them. I found out sometime ago that Boomers as a whole typically had children much later, and that some either had 1,2 or 3 kids.

    Well, I'm not American, but even though my beliefs are vaguely left wing I wouldn't type as liberal.

    "Tery999- Interesting! I would love to do more research on Eastern European politics and see why that is the case. "

    The quickest explanation would probably be because we were communists. A lot of people hate this ideology seeing how it pretty much stagnated thr whole region without any progression. In the Balkans it is blamed for ethnic division and the creation of fake nations - see Romania and Moldova, Bulgaria and Macedonia. In Russia and Ukraine it is blamed for the massive perge of wealthy and intellectuals as well as the Holodomor.
    In Western Europe and USA there is a growing trend in favor among young people for socialism and communism, which is simply absent over here.
    After the fall of communism the economy of every country simply collapsed , because it was "fake" it didnt care about demand it was just producing a certain amoint of goods without factoring wether or not they are needed.
    In my country the result was that it needed 12 years to recover and reach the economic state it was in before the collapse. Because of the poverty 20% of the population migrated. For most post communist countries it also took around 10-15 years to recover and also lost around 20% of the population. Some countries like Moldova and Ukraine never recovered.

    So basicly you've got a region which hates communism and has dissbelief in the current democratic system.
    Hope this clears it out a little :)
