Gen Z Sparks Viral Movement To Re-Elect President Biden and Vice President Harris [View all]

Ignore what the mainstream media is trying to push. The Democratic electorate stands firmly with President Biden and Vice President Harris in their reelection efforts. Last week, I wrote an op-ed arguing that as a 24 year old, I am voting for the Biden-Harris ticket in 2024 because the Biden Administration has done more for young people than any prior Administration in our nation's history. Oh, and the alternative candidate (Donald Trump) would be absolutely devastating for our country.

The opinion piece, which originally started as a short tweet, sparked a viral trend to show support for the Biden-Harris agenda. Americans across our country, many with large platforms, took to Twitter to show their support for President Biden. Take for example Gen Z activist Olivia Julianna (21 years old) and Star Trek Actor George Takei (86 years old).

In total, over one million accounts online viewed these viral tweets, sharing them to their own audiences. In fact, this support was not just coming from those with large followings. Thousands of Americans online voiced their support for the Administration and pledged their support heading into 2024 for the Biden-Harris campaign.

The virality of this campaign (which was not coordinated) demonstrates two key points. First, the mainstream media, which earns money off of creating controversy, does not represent the general electorate. Pushing polls that demonstrate President Biden's weaknesses only go to serve the media's bottomline. This should not shock you. In 2016, the media helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. And, in 2020, that same media featured Trump more than any other Democratic candidate to create controversy amongst the general electorate.
