Young Americans (18-29) Speak Out in Generation Opportunity Poll

Generation Opportunity, the new nonprofit, non-partisan organization educating, engaging and mobilizing young Americans 18-29 years old on the immediate and long-term economic challenges facing the nation, is highlighting polling numbers outlining the views of young people on their preferred solutions to address record unemployment and the bad economy.


“Young Americans are looking for economic opportunity and they know the solution rests with job creators in small business and companies – not government,” said Paul T. Conway, president of Generation Opportunity. “As they continue to work to make ends meet and weigh the costs of delayed dreams, young adults are sending a message to the President and Congress – stop your spending and get out of the way of those who actually know how to create jobs in America.”




Generation Opportunity recently commissioned a poll with the polling company, inc./WomanTrend and highlights some of the results below:
