A Tocqueville Program talk, moderated by Amy Conrad Warner, IUPUI Vice Chancellor for Community Engagement
Based on voting data and surveys from the 2016 election and immediately after, this talk will explore young people and politics. Which of them voted, and why? Whom did they vote for? What did they think of the election and the early weeks of the Trump Administration? How are they likely to engage with politics in the months and years to come?
