well with less than a year until the 2022 midterms gen z voters could become a major problem for democrats polls show they are the least likely to identify as conservative but they are also the most likely to disapprove of the job president biden is doing nbc's noah pransky is here to help break it down for us noah these are the same voters who helped get president biden elected is that right yeah and we're not just seeing it in polling but also in recent turnout numbers young voters appear very frustrated at the slow pace of progress

in washington we took a look at the recent turnout in virginia and the exit polling suggested that the turnout for voters under the age of 30 was down a whopping 64 from just a year ago more than three times the drop in voters over the age of 30 and saw similar results in california for their recall election where the numbers of voters under the age of 30 dropped by almost half you know republicans may love calling gavin newsom or joe biden liberals but to a lot of progressives those gentlemen aren't liberal enough and democrats are concerned that they may keep losing

they see them kind of starting to reach this tipping point of no turning back and so they want bold action on them and they want that fast set of polling numbers here the harvard kennedy school survey earlier this year voters under the age of 30 show that 36 percent of americans at that age are politically active that's a lot more than just 2009 after president obama's first election when only 24 of young voters said that they were politically active but these days a lot of them may come from marching in the streets or voicing their opinions on social media and until that

generation comes out to the polls more they're gonna have trouble getting some of their priorities passed right so is it all good news for democrats in the future or or good news for republicans right now there's opportunity for both parties right now it isn't necessarily all good news for republicans because it shows that their party isn't activating this young generation either indications are that even though a third of voters under the age of 30 cast ballots for president trump last year that generation is not likely to be hearing from the republican party either i think both parties need
