America’s next leaders think the government is fucked. Pure and simple, young adults are disillusioned with the current political system. The people who will be the future leaders of America say politics today are corrupt, inefficient and messy — words that only begin to underline the disgust many young people feel.
That’s what a recent Mic survey of 666 people under the age of 34 from every state said when asked to describe today’s American political environment. When asked to use one word to describe it, nearly all respondents included negative terms. Shit. Messy. Ineffective. Oligarchy. These are the damning terms respondents turned to when describing American politics.
