Power to the Polls
Welcome back to Millennial Monitor (+), a partnership between GenForward and HIT Strategies, generating and interpreting data on the policy views of young adults—Millennials (age 25-36) and Generation Z (age 18- 24).
Independent and young progressive voters believe hyper-partisanship is a leading cause of inaction in government and that Congress is “ineffective” because it’s beholden to wealthy donors and special interests.
To learn the Black community’s policy priorities and understand Black voters’ political power, Black Futures Lab commissioned HIT Strategies to conduct a poll in the spring of 2021. In the survey, Black respondents expressed concerns about COVID-19’s public health impacts and economic repercussions when the pandemic devastated communities of color across the country.
