The Kids Are All Left

How Young Voters Will Unite America

A demographic apocalypse is coming for the Republican Party. Young voters overwhelmingly favor the Left, and the margins are at such an unprecedented and overwhelming scale that these voters are poised to end the partisan gridlock that has characterized politics for over thirty years.

In The Kids Are All Left, political scientist David Faris proves beyond any doubt that this isn’t just a typical generational trend that will even out over time and explores the policy transformations that young Americans will pursue. He offers hope for an escape from the political stalemate that has twice this century sent the loser of the popular vote to the White House, but he is realistic about the institutional obstacles that stand between voters and true majority rule.

The result is a first look at America in the 21st century.
