Democratic Momentum: Minnesota college students emphasize economic importance to Gen Z


Apr 3, 2024

The upcoming 2024 presidential election is right around the corner, with the economy emerging as a significant concern for voters of all ages. A recent survey conducted by Tufts University highlights that the cost of living and inflation are top issues for voters aged 18-34, including members of Generation Z and some millennials. As the presidential campaigns ramp up, it’s crucial to understand how young voters are approaching these economic challenges.

MPR News recently hosted a conversation with two Gen Z voters, Will Pierce and Cory Hallada, who represent different ends of the political spectrum. Pierce, a junior studying political science at Macalester College in St. Paul, and Hallada, a junior studying political science and economics at St. Olaf College in Northfield, shared their insights on how the economy is influencing their voting decisions this election season.
