The Political Culture of Young Britain
This report examines the demographics and political beliefs of a sample of 1,542 18-20 year-old British young people surveyed by YouGov between 14 April and 6 May 2022. Links to the questions and crosstabulations can be found here. Its focus is on mapping the culturally-left youth culture that West so prominently identified in his book, and which underpins progressive parties’ overwhelming 60-point advantage over conservative parties among young people. The study design allows me to examine which forces, such as education and social media, are reproducing this culture, and what its consequences are for, among other things, expressive freedom, national identity, minority progress and wellbeing.
