Good episode? Give it some love!
Kristen Soltis Anderson is a pollster and co-founder of Echelon Insights. For five years, she co-hosted the podcast, The Pollsters, she hosts the SiriusXM show, The Trendline, and the Fox Nation show What Are the Odds? She also regularly appears on television to discuss the latest polls.

She’s spent a lot of time looking at polls of Millennials in particular. In 2015, she published her first book, The Selfie Vote: Where Millennials Are Leading Ame…, in which she reviews data on millennials’ tendency to vote for Democrats and the unique features of modern life that may be driving this shift.
In this episode, we have a great conversation about her work, what political polling can reveal, and how young voters’ preferences may affect the 2020 U.S. election…and other elections to come.

Some things that come up in this episode:
  • Generation Z enjoys mocking Millennials (Buzzfeed)
  • The Bennington College study of political attitudes over one’s lifetime (Newcomb, 1943; Alwin, Cohen, & Newcomb, 1992)
  • Kristen’s new report on Generation Z and Millennials’ optimism for the future (Walton Family Foundation, 2020)
