(My bold) So the record numbers of incumbent Republicans not running for re-election is just part of this evolution and adaptation ?
Thanks from Hollywood and Clara007

What’s not to like? OK , Trump is an ass, but he’s doing the right stuff, mostly.
"end to over 60 years of war in Korea"
Really? When was the peace treaty signed by all belligerents?
Thanks from Clara007

The lines between generations are grey as we all know but i do get your point.

It still shows what i (and many others) have been saying that the youth are fleeing the DNC.


My point is three-fold: 1) There's something "OFF" with the survey IF the designers are too uninformed to know the definition of millennials. 2) Depending on the dates (which is not stated and WHY NOT?) the survey might have turned out dramatically different. The Parkland shooting changed attitudes. 3) How many Gen Z participants were surveyed?

All in all, I'm guessing this survey is not even close to accurate, but if you can provide another similar survey pointing in the same direction, I'd be happy to reevaluate.
AND if you have evidence that the "Youth" are fleeing the DNC, please provide it.

According to the Trump Team, the peace treaty has been signed, sealed and delivered, thanks to Prez Dotard.

The Republicans aren't evolving or adapting. They aren't adopting more libertarian ideals.

They've simply quit pretending they're anything other than what they are.

CORPORATE STOOGES. The last round of tax cuts and tRumps on going slaughter of EPA, OSHA and every other regulatory agency in the nation is proof of that.
Thanks from imaginethat, Camelot and Clara007

Please explain how the GOP is evolving, with the caveat that evolution is progress.

So your main issue is that they said millennials and not voters 18-35?

I dont think that the shooting had the effect that you think that it did.

I don't place a lot of faith in polls and don't know how accurate the sample is but it is more evidence that youth are fleeing the DNC. You have to remember that conservatism is todays counterculture and the more in your face progressivism becomes the more attractive its opposite becomes.bthe thing about classical liberal ideals is that they make sense. All it takes it is to introduce them to people. No real convincing needed.

Did i say gop or did i say republicans?

Look at the who college republicans and who they are hosting for events. Ben shapiro, milo, Owen Benjamin, Jordan Peterson, Dave Ruben to name a few. Only one of them would be classically considered a "conservative" two are not ony gay but gay married. Two would have been called liberals just a few short years ago. The religious right is on its way out and classical liberalism is on its way in.
Thanks from guy39
