Gen Z Voters Questions Biden’s Abilities for Presidency

By Jerry McConway, updated on December 25, 2023

A significant key to Joe Biden winning the 2020 election was Democrats' ability to lock down the younger voters of this country, luring them in with student loan forgiveness and a far-left agenda.

Even with Biden delivering some student loan forgiveness and implementing a green agenda, those same voters are now questioning his ability to perform his presidential duties due to his "retiree" lifestyle.

Biden Dominates Gen Z Voters in 2020 Election

The 2020 election had more votes cast than this country has seen in its entire history for a single election, and a significant part of that was that Gen Z voters came out in droves. Almost 160 million votes were cast in that election, with an estimated 53 to 55% of voters between the ages of 18 and 29 heading to the voting booth during the election.

Biden won the election by about 5.5 million votes, and in large part, that was on the strength of Gen Z voters, where Biden won about 65% of that demographic, a demographic he is about to lose.

Gen Z Losing Faith in Biden

Pollsters are now specifically looking at this group of voters because of how much power they yielded in the 2020 election, and the news is not good for Joe Biden. More specifically, Gen Z voters do not like the idea of Joe Biden working four days a week, going on numerous vacations, and spending his weekends in Delaware… in other words, living like a retiree.

Biden's current approval rating among Gen Z voters is 34%, with a disapproval rating of 61%, so they have all pretty much decided that Joe is not acting like a president.

One Gen Z voter, Kale Ogunbor, told Fox News:

"I don't mean to rag on the president of the United States, but honestly, he's acting like a retiree.

"It's been reported that over 40% of Joe Biden's presidency has been spent on vacation. And I think many Americans, including Gen Z, don't want a president who seems more like he's retired the next four years after 2024."

Analysis

In reading through the comments from the Monmouth University poll, Biden's cognitive abilities are regularly being questioned by this demographic of voters. Let's remember, this is the smartphone generation that reads headlines and watches videos, so all those gaffes of Joe Biden's are being noticed and making a big impression.

Another Gen Z voter compared Joe Biden to "Weekend and Bernie's," suggesting that Jill Biden is the real president, as well as stating that Jill and Biden's staff are the ones running the show.

Gen Z is also just getting out there to earn money, so the costs of groceries and gasoline will majorly impact their budgets, and they are not happy that their fun-money budget is getting hit pretty hard.

This is a significant problem for Biden because he is already losing a huge chunk of minority voters, as Trump has made significant inroads in both the black and Hispanic voter demographics. If Biden also loses Gen Z, his path to victory becomes extremely narrow, if he even has one at all.
