Conservatives have not seen the red wave they had hoped to see. Voting trends historically show young people voting for Democrats. As the quote often attributed to John Adams says, “If you are not liberal at 25, you have no heart. If you are not conservative at 35, you do not have a brain.”
Pretending to champion single-voter issues by supporting celebrities adds to this trend. new NBC Poll Exit poll data examined voters between the ages of 18 and 29 (12% of voters) and 63% voted for Democrats, while only 35% in this age group voted for Republicans.
People are turning to the Republican Party over time. Those 30 to 44 (21% of voters) voted 51% for Democrats and 47% for Republicans. The next age group, 45 to 64 (39% of voters), 44% voted for Democrats and 54% for Republicans. Those 65 and older (28% of the electorate) voted 43% Democratic and 55% Republican.
As we can see, support for conservative leadership grows with age and wisdom.
