34. Problem is

that people tend to turn "conservative" as they get older.

My mother was a Kennedy democrat who had connections to the county democratic party into her 40s.

She got into CNN when if first got big in the late 80s/early 90s, then ended up moving to Faux in the late 90s/into the 2000s. She also slipped into dementia, and that allowed Faux to assimilate her.

The older people get, the most liable they are to be sucked into their BS.

The older folks, the folks more liable to vote, are probably always going to at least lean "conservative."
