Political orientation, in relation to the general population, has been considered important for the sustainability of representative democracy (Gomez et al., 2016; Rooduijn et al., 2017; Visser et al., 2014). Given that political attitudes developed at a young age tend to persist into adulthood (Siedler, 2011), and in view of the fact that radical political attitudes reside not at the pathological margins but must be considered ‘mainstream’ (Miller-Idriss, 2018a), it is particularly important to learn more about young people holding radical political attitudes.
