They come up with something like this:
"The final “mega'' demographic trend is the rise of a new
generation of voters — the so-called millennials — whose
political leanings have been shaped by the last two presidencies.
History shows a strong relationship between the popularity
of the presidents in power and the political leanings of the
generations who came of age during their administrations, said
Scott Keeter, director of survey research at the Pew Research
Center in Washington.
The millennials “have two presidents they can remember in
their adulthood,'' Bush and Democrat Bill Clinton, Keeter said at
the Brookings forum. “This has been very good for the Democratic
brand with this age group.''
Another reason this group is moving toward the Democratic
Party may be that the percentage of secular voters is expanding
rapidly while the enthusiasm gap between white evangelicals and
other groups has narrowed significantly, according to Bill
Galston, a senior fellow at Brookings. The percentage of secular
voters more than doubled during the 1990s to 15 percent of the
population, and it's even higher among young voters."
Okay, clear enough so far….
"Still, some Republicans said analysts are overstating the
political implications of these demographic shifts.
“As soon as these young people get away from communal
living and get married with children they usually take a
different view on life,'' said John Morgan, a Republican
consultant and demographer."
Ummmm, you silly millennial hippie kids and your filthy communes….
No, wait, those were the 60s.
Dang, the Republicans are having flashbacks.
