NEW YORK, November 20. /TASS/. US President Joe Biden is losing support from Millennials (born from the early 1980s to the late 1990s) and Gen Z (born from the late 1990s to early 2010s) due to his inability to connect with them . This was reported by The Wall Street Journal.
According to her estimates, despite the statements of the White House team that Biden’s frequent references to the past belong to his “folk style”, and new generations “perceive his wisdom and experience,” the president is losing the support of young people because it is difficult for him to find a common language with young voters. The publication claims that Biden’s stories “about people who died and disappeared from public view” look irrelevant to young audiences.
Danielle Parra, head of the Atlanta-based Emory University Young Democrats, said the president, who turns 81 on Monday, “appears out of touch,” continuing to invoke past politicians with whom Generation Z has no connection.
The Wall Street Journal notes that Biden is more than 60 years away from voters who will vote for him for the first time in 2024. The newspaper estimates that such a huge gap poses a challenge for the oldest president in US history. As 26-year-old IT company employee Alex Greenwald told the publication, the content of Biden’s official speeches “does not reflect the problems faced by young people” living from paycheck to paycheck.
The next US presidential election will be held in November 2024. On April 25, Biden announced that he would seek re-election to the highest government office. Former head of the White House Donald Trump announced his entry into the election race in November 2022.
