I've found several sources that explain that "Generation Z" could be the most conservative one since the end of WW2.

Some of the sources, are the ones that follow:

Dailymail: They don't like drugs or gay marriage, and they HATE tattoos: Is 'Generation Z' the most conservative since WW2?

CNSnews: The Next Generation of Americans (Gen Z) May Be the Most Conservative Since WWII

ChristianPost: Generation Z Most Conservative Since WWII?

Personally, I clearly see "Generation Z" easily being more conservative than "Millenials", I still consider possible them being more conservative than "Generation X", but still quite a stretch, but in no way to be more conservative than "Baby boomers".

Is the claim I'm mentioning backed up by reliable data that shows that "Generation Z" could be with a considerable probability more conservative than the other mentioned generations?

    My impression was that Gen Z were further to the left, not the right. I'd definitely want to see data from a source less biased than the Daily Mail. – F1Krazy Dec 27 '18 at 17:18

    I have no data, but you might want to reconsider levels of conservative in your mental model, taking into account the effects of age. Back in the day, "Baby Boomers" were known as "hippies". – Ben Barden Dec 27 '18 at 18:38

    The CNSNews story and the ChristianPost article are mostly the same story by one author. It appears that he simply rewrote small parts of it. – Legion600 Dec 27 '18 at 21:49

    @BenBarden Not nearly all Boomers were hippies, although the hippie movement was well publicized (including a painfully bad depiction in a Star Trek episode). Lots of Boomers were relatively conservative; they just didn't get the publicity. – David Thornley Dec 27 '18 at 22:29

    I am concerned this entire question depends on your definition of "conservative". (One of the articles talks about tattoos and body piercings, which seems to be more about fashion - and not wanting to look like 30-somethings - than any reasonable definition of "conservative"). – Oddthinking Dec 28 '18 at 0:00
