‘Gen Z Is Absolutely Fed Up’

(DCWatchdog.com) – A university student broke down why young voters back the likely 2024 Republican presidential nominee, former President Donald Trump, during a segment on “Fox & Friends First.”

Emily Sturge, a student at the University of Florida and Campus Reform correspondent, explained to Fox News’ Carly Shimkus that Trump is gaining popularity among young people as the 2024 election draws nearer.

“I’m so excited to see this type of independent thinking among my generation happening on social media because frankly, this is no longer happening in our classrooms or on our college campuses. So, Gen Z has taken to social media to voice their opinions,” Sturge said.

She continued, “Let’s not forget how Donald Trump completely revolutionized the way social media like Twitter was used to directly connect with the American audience. And now Gen Z is carrying on this trend.”

She emphasized that Gen Z appreciated Donald Trump’s authenticity and candidness in his tweets, whether he was discussing North Korea, Diet Coke, or whatever else was on his mind at three a.m.

She also underscored that the so-called Generation Z valued honesty and recognized that Trump was the kind of leader they needed in the White House because more of their generation was waking up to the fact that their lives were actually better under Donald Trump than they were under Joe Biden.

The TV host referenced polling data showing Joe Biden’s support among Gen Z voters dropping from 51% in 2020 to 45% in March 2024. Meanwhile, Trump’s support among Gen Z voters rose from 28% in 2020 to 37% in March 2024.

Furthermore, Sturge suggested that Gen Z voters are “wise enough” not to vote Democrat because Biden canceled billions in student loan debt just months before the election.

Biden announced $7.4 billion in student loan forgiveness for 277,000 Americans earlier in April through his Saving on a Valuable Education (SAVE) repayment plan, which began in February 2023.

The Supreme Court had previously blocked the president from using executive action to forgive student loans for 40 million Americans in a 6-3 decision in June 2023.
