This is my first post on this website and I wanted to post this article from NYMAG
"This tension continues to define the beliefs of American voters. Among the 2012 electorate, more voters identified themselves as conservative (35 percent) than liberal (25 percent), and more said the government is already doing too much that should be left to the private sector (51 percent) than asserted that the government ought to be doing more to solve problems (44 percent). But this is not the case with younger voters. By a 59 percent to 37 percent margin, voters under 30 say the government should do more to solve problems. More remarkably, 33 percent of voters under 30 identified themselves as liberal, as against 26 percent who called themselves conservative."A liberal future is a dream to me. I hope these voting trends stick.
I know based on people I associate with and a majority of people my age, which is the 25 - 34 age demographic, most are very sympathetic to Liberal causes. It seems also that the 18-24 demographic is just as sympathetic or even more so.
People talk about demographics, but I think this age gap is also very important. I believe they say it takes 2 to 3 election cycles to make voting ID preferences stick. It has been 2 cycles already and people my age or younger have voted overwhelmingly Democratic.
I don't want to jinx it, but I think this could become a major deal.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you all have a great day!
