A brewing generational shift is about to change politics—and our country—forever.
A demographic apocalypse is coming for the Republican Party. The surge in young voters for Biden in 2020 was only the beginning. Not only do they overwhelmingly favor the left, but the margins are at such an unprecedented and overwhelming scale that these voters are poised to end the partisan gridlock that has characterized politics for over thirty years.
In The Kids Are All Left, political scientist David Faris proves beyond any doubt that this isn't just a typical generational trend that will even out over time and explores the policy transformations that young Americans will pursue. He offers hope for an escape from the political stalemate that has twice this century sent the loser of the popular vote to the White House, but he is realistic about the institutional obstacles that stand between voters and true majority rule.
The result is a first look at what America n politics will look like in the 21st century.

"[An] insightful and fascinating prediction . . . Faris's observations are sharp and data-driven as well as wildly fun to read." —Booklist
"A convincing and rousing argument about the influence of voters in their 20s and 30s [...] Cautious hope for democracy's future." —Kirkus "David Faris makes a clear and compelling case that the future is progressive. Faris pulls no punches outlining the ideological and demographic problems for which the Republican Party is whistling past the graveyard. If there is any question about the accuracy and precision of the author’s foresight, consider what condition the Republican Party will be in in the future when the kids are all much further Left than the present Democratic Party." —Benjamin Dixon, host of The Benjamin Dixon Show
