The Fourth Turning and the 2024 Election

October 6, 2023

The popular new book, “The Fourth Turning is Here” by Neil Howe, lays out some interesting parameters for the two coming elections that will occur during what he believes the Fourth Turning period 2021 to 2033 entails.

Prior Fourth turnings have turned out some of our strongest Presidents.

George Washington ….1783-1794 Fourth Turning

Abraham Lincoln …..1860-1865 Fourth Turning

Franklin D. Roosevelt….1938-1946 Fourth Turning

Interestingly and maybe importantly the ages of these Presidents during the Fourth Turnings ranged between 56 and 65.

As we are in a Fourth Turning period and look at the ages of potential Democratic candidates for the 2024 and 2028 Elections we see that a tight range of birth dates between 1967 and 1973 will produce Presidents with the combination of experience and age that will provide strong and vigorous leadership that is congruent with history.

These five potential candidates are in order here from oldest to youngest with their birthdate.

  • Gavin Newsom 1967
  • Dean Philips 1969
  • Hakeem Jeffries 1970
  • Gretchen Whitmer 1971
  • Raja Krishnamoothi 1973
