What Does the Growing Political Divide Among Young Men And Women Mean For Their Gen Of America?

August 7, 2023 • Chris, Greg and Ken • Proverbs 22:6

Some recent survey and poll data has revealed an unusual shift in the political views of high school and college age men and women. Like so much other division and polarization in this country, young men are increasingly leaning to the right, politically speaking, while young women are increasingly leaning left. This argues against the popular narrative that all young people are becoming more liberal. In this episode, we discuss some of this data with a view to what this might mean for marriages, families, and the church in America. https://catholicvote.org/survey-shows-increasing-numbers-hs-boys-conservative https://monitoringthefuture.org/ https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/4125661-high-school-boys-are-trending-conservative/ https://www.americansurveycenter.org/featured_data/the-growing-political-divide-between-young-men-and-women/ https://www.dailywire.com/news/high-school-boys-becoming-more-conservative-while-girls-move-farther-left-survey https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2023/07/16/democrats-masculinity-roundtable-00106105
