  •  However, I do know people who fit the stereotype: (14+ / 0-)

    My husband and I are boomers (well, actually he slightly predates the Baby Boom) and most of our friends from the 60's & early 70's were pretty lefty. But there were plenty of people who joined us in the demonstrations and protests who weren't really all that liberal, they were just followers. It was very in to be against the war and for civil rights.
    So those folks changed when it became in to support Reagan (I got into some real arguments with them over this). They weren't thinking, analytic types of people so their commitment to social issues and liberal ideals was pretty limited.
    It's not that they became more conservative, it's that they never were really all that liberal.
