Young people and the Bill

By Cyrus Beschloss

President Biden has dropped huge political capital on the now-frozen Infrastructure Bill. Given Biden’s high emphasis on bipartisanship, this Bill is a key bellwether for the future of cross-party teamwork. 


  • State of play: Despite initial momentum, the bill has hit potentially fatal headwinds, due mainly to Democrats’ intraparty duels. 

As lawmakers lock horns, calculate and decide, it’s essential to understand how key voting blocs view the various spending plans sitting in limbo. 


Alongside Axios, we interviewed 804 young people (ages 18-29) on how they view the present political moment. 


Based on a survey of 810 college students conducted on June 24-28, 2021.
