This Pew study helps to dispel the myth that young people don't come out to vote. And it also further puts into question all of the polling as we head into the 2020 presidential race where most of the respondents are older people.

Sometimes it could be the older generations are just not politically active or they might not so disgusted with the current generation they might not vote.

There is also that whole death thing that gets in the way. Older generations tend to die at a higher rate than younger generations.

While I wouldn't put it in such a crude way like you did, I agree that the children are the future and their views are not in line with the regressive views older people tend to hold.

This study also shows that young people in reality are just as politically active, if not more so, than a lot of folks give them credit for.

That young people don't turn out to vote in as large numbers as older people.

How many of them would be an SJW liberal/conservative Flat-Earth and Illuminati-rejected nagging mother-in-law?
