Charlie Pierce on Gen Z's Voter Turnout in the 2022 Midterms

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Certainly, his approval rating has demonstrated by the results. Among young people is pretty high. Yeah. I have to say, that is the huge story of this midterm, isn't it? What was it? The 18 to 29. Forgiving student loans and legalizing weed would bring in Joe Biden. But it canceled out every vote over 65. I mean, that turnout among Gen Z was really extraordinary. Yeah, and I thought it was, I thought what I thought was really interesting was that people are news news outlets were counting up the votes cast on college campuses. Like I found out you found out that Gretchen Whitmer got 95% of the vote at the University of Michigan. Yeah. I think Chris, I think you're around moderate. They came out with what the count was among the Arizona state students. It was 96%. Yeah, that's true. I don't think I've ever seen that before. I don't think I've ever seen news outlets go try to get those particular numbers. Yeah, but only about 8000 out of a 50,000 student campus voted, so I don't know that. ASU that much. But still at least they voted. When they voted overwhelmingly for Mark Kelly, so every little bit helps.
