El voto de los millennials en cinco artículos … según Irene Martín

Las cuatro Españas y la casita en la playaHéctor Meleiro, 20/05/17

Lo que reveló el 20D (y posteriormente consolidó el 26J) es que las dos Españas se habían convertido en cuatro. La derecha, pero sobre todo la izquierda, se había dividido generacionalmente, y por primera vez se traducía en un reparto diferente de la representación política.

La pregunta que debemos hacernos es la siguiente: ¿es Podemos más capaz de incorporar a su proyecto de cambio a las cohortes más viejas que el PSOE de conectar con las generaciones más jóvenes?

Les jeunes et le vote FN: de la voix de la protestation à la voie de l’alternance, Anne Muxel, 19/05/17

À la veille du premier tour de l’élection présidentielle de 2017, même si des mouvements d’opinion très récents, dans la dernière ligne droite de cette campagne, marquent un certain tassement du socle électoral de Marine Le Pen et une dynamique particulièrement visible de la candidature de Jean-Luc Mélenchon, le vote Front national reste attractif.

L’impact du chômage des jeunes est majeur : 53% des primo-votants chômeurs ou à la recherche d’un premier emploi sont disposés à voter pour la candidate frontiste. Cependant, l’attrait électoral de Marine Le Pen touche aussi des segments de la jeunesse moins directement touchés par la crise sociale et économique et les difficultés d’insertion socio-professionnelle : 24% des « étudiants » sont aussi tentés par ce débouché politique.

Young people in a changing Europe: British youth and Brexit 2016Matt HennDarren Sharpe, 2016

The decision of the UK population to support the Brexit option at the 2016 EU Referendum will have significant economic, social, political and cultural consequences – and none more so than for the futures of young people. However, the outcome would appear to be at odds with the instincts and preferences of the majority of young people who have indicated their broad support for the European project and who voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU.

Conceivably, the growing inequalities between the generations provides a significant challenge of our time. For a youth generation that has borne the brunt of recent austerity politics and which already feels poorly served by the political class, the Referendum outcome may serve to deepen the ongoing dissatisfaction that young people feel in relation to democratic processes in the UK.

Why Millennials Love Bernie Sanders…Sophia A. McClennen, 3/06/16

Sanders campaign has made a lasting impression on young voters that will remain whether or not he wins the nomination. (…) Whether or not he’s winning or losing, it’s really that he’s impacting the way in which a generation—the largest generation in the history of America—thinks about politics.”

The Sanders campaign has resonated with millennials for the simple reason that he has been the only candidate to take the issues facing our nation’s young seriously. He was the first candidate to put the issue of student debt on the map and he was the only candidate brave enough to state outright that the greatest security threat to the planet is climate change—not ISIS. But, perhaps most importantly, his campaign recognizes the very real economic challenges facing young voters, who not only have more debt than any other young generation in U.S. history, but also face higher unemployment and more depressed wages than their elders.

Elezioni 2013. Un Grillo nella testa dei giovaniMarco AlbertiniRoberto Impicciatore e Dario Tuorto, 6/03/16

Nei primi commenti al risultato delle elezioni molti opinionisti hanno suggerito che l’affermazione del Movimento 5 Stelle (M5S) ha fatto finalmente emergere il tema della frattura tra le generazioni – sia nel modo di fare politica, sia nella visione di cosa debba fare e di chi debba proteggere lo stato sociale.

Se così fosse queste elezioni avrebbero dato una risposta a uno dei puzzle di più difficile soluzione per gli studiosi di relazioni intergenerazionali: l’assenza di conflitto generazionale pur in presenza di forti squilibri di welfare tra giovani e anziani.
