When looking at a general Gen Z population sample including all genders, abortion was not a top issue. However, when removing cis-gendered men from the sample, abortion became a top issue, indicating abortion could likely be a motivating issue for cis women, trans men, trans women, and gender-fluid individuals.

Inflation is the highest concern among Gen X, Boomers, and Silent Generation, the second highest among Millennials, and the fourth highest among Gen Z. When looking at just cisgender Gen Z men, inflation was the highest priority. 

“Just as we saw in Kansas, Gen Z is going to be a transformational force at the ballot box this November. We know that this generation votes based on issues rather than political party, so understanding what motivates them as a voting bloc is critical for any candidate or campaign,” Sara Guillermo, IGNITE CEO
