The Berkley Center and the Public Religion Research Institute launched a timely survey that explores how 18-25 year-olds view values, politics, and the 2012 election. The survey
provides new insights about the values and religious beliefs that animate young adults, and how these factors impact their voting preferences and views on a range of topics including affirmative action, economic policy, and social issues. It also provides clues about what young people think about the presidential candidates and the campaign.
The new survey is a follow-up to a study released in April and is part of the Millennial Values Symposium
that brought student leaders to Washington, D.C. from around the country for a series of conversations about values and the future of American democracy. The day featured discussions with elected officials and media leaders, as well as an event on the Future of American Politics featuring Millennial Mayors Svante Myrick (Ithaca, New York) and Alex Morse (Holyoke, Massachusetts).
