Generation Z – people who were born from 1995 onward – take an even more liberal view of the role of government than do millennials, according to a new report from the Pew Research Center.
The research is important as Generation Z moves toward adulthood and enters the electorate ahead of the 2020 presidential election during quite a divisive time in our nation.
Just 30 percent of Generation Z adults surveyed by Pew said they approved of Trump's job performance compared with 29 percent of Millennials, 38 percent of adults from Generation X (people born in the early-to-mid 1960s to the early 1980s) and 43 percent of Baby Boomers (people born between 1946 and 1964).
Additionally, 70 percent from Generation Z believe the government should to more to solve problems, compared to 64 percent of Millennials, 53 percent of Generation Xers and 49 percent of Baby Boomers. Sixty-two percent from Generation Z say increasing racial/ethnic diversity is good for society, compared to 61 percent of Millennials, 52 percent of Generation Xers and 48 percent of Baby Boomers.
"When it comes to views on race, the two younger generations are more likely than older generations to say that blacks are treated less fairly than whites in the United States today," according to the report. "And they are much more likely than their elders to approve of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem as a sign of protest."
