Gender- and Age-Sensitive Political Attitudes of Young People

According to the results of empirical research, the article reveals the age and sexual characteristics of Russian people political attitudes. The analysis shows that men, in general, are characterized by increased opposition and strict certainty in their political views, unlike women, who are generally more loyal to the elections and the current government, and their arsenal of opinions is less diverse and characterized by uncertainty. The middle age group shows the poor diversity in the answers, in most cases they are not altogether different from the sample and reveals an increased level of apolitical behavior, being in the phase of search and self-determination. The mature age group is politically active, with welldefined and very conservative electoral preferences. The group of the youngest differs little from the sample, but their political preferences are often polar to the mature ones.
