People gather in Black Lives Matter Plaza to celebrate president-elect Joe Biden's win over President Donald Trump on Nov. 7 in Washington, D.C. A new Harvard poll shows the youngest voting-age Americans are more politically active and optimistic about the future than four years ago.Despite living through one of the most politically and racially divisive eras in U.S. history, the youngest of voting-age Americans — especially those of color —appear more hopeful about the country's future than they were four years ago, a new poll released Friday finds.The Harvard Youth Poll of 2,513 Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 conducted from March 9 to March 22, found them expressing significantly more optimism than in the months after Donald Trump became president.In answer to the question: "At this moment, would you say that you are more hopeful or fearful about the future of America?", 56% said they are "more hopeful," compared to 31% who answered that way in a 2017 poll.The change from four years ago was particularly dramatic among Blacks – 72% compared to just 18% in 2017 — and Hispanics, 69% who said they were "more optimistic" as opposed to 29% previously."As millennials and Gen Z become the largest voting bloc, their values and participation provide hope for the future and also a sense of urgency that our country must address the pressing issues that concern them," said Mark Gearan, director of the Harvard Kennedy School's Institute of Politics.Those surveyed also indicated approval for President Biden's overall job performance, with the highest marks coming from Blacks (77%), Hispanics (70%), college students (61%) and college graduates (67%).
