Voters of Tomorrow Releases New Poll of Gen Z Voters

Voters of Tomorrow, a Gen Z-led nonpartisan organization that harnesses the political power of young Americans, today released a new national poll of Gen Z voters. The Voters of Tomorrow/Generation Lab poll finds Biden leading Trump 42% – 29%, and Democrats leading the generic Congressional ballot by 22%. 

The national Gen Z survey also found young people are motivated to vote, support a ceasefire in Gaza, strongly prefer Democrats’ legislative agenda, and view Trump more negatively due to his court cases. The top three issues that will influence Gen Z’s vote in 2024 are the economy, abortion, and healthcare.

“Gen Z is motivated is vote and we are doing everything we can to turnout the youth vote to historic levels,” said Voters of Tomorrow’s executive director Santiago Mayer. “Gen Z’s message can be heard loud and clear. We want leaders who are pushing bold, decisive action on protecting abortion rights, combating climate change, and delivering good jobs – not defending themselves in court cases about sexual assault and overturning elections.”

The poll was conducted February 3-14 with a representative sample of 992 18-to-29-year-olds nationwide (485 registered voters), with a ±3.1% margin of error. Results below:
