New Poll by Voters of Tomorrow Finds Youth Fear for Their Futures

Voters of Tomorrow, a Gen Z-led non-profit that represents and engages young people in politics, released today a polling memo with Generation Labs surveying 763 young adults aged 18-29 on their political views ahead of the upcoming midterm elections. 

From the polling memo: “The data is clear: young people fear for their future. Gun violence and abortion are on the top of young voters’ minds. In addition, young voters are particularly mobilized by the threat of future SCOTUS rulings, such as basic human rights for LGBTQ Americans. This upcoming November…young voters will vote—motivated primarily to fight for abortion rights, gun violence prevention, and LGBTQ rights at the court.”

The memo covers five main issue areas: 

  • Gun violence
  • Abortion
  • The Supreme Court
  • Elections and democracy
  • Perception of the Biden Administration and youth representation in government.


Memo: A summary and analysis of polling results

Toplines: Results among young adults aged 18-29 for every question

Crosstabs: Results for every question broken down by demographics and other individual attributes

The margin of error is approximately +/- 3.55% for the whole sample.
