Voters between the ages of 18 and 29 cast their ballots in favor of Democrats 63 percent of the time in the 2022 elections, exit polling data found. Data from NBC exit polls found that the demographic, comprised of Generation Z and the Millennials, voted 63 percent for Democrats and just 35 percent for the Republicans. The age demographic accounted for 12 percent of the electorate, in contrast to those aged 30 to 44, who made up 21 percent of the electorate and voted 51 percent for Democrats and 47 percent for Republicans, the exit poll data found. Meanwhile, those between the ages of 45 and 64 made up 39 percent

Why not? They or their family received checks plus worked from home or played video games the past few years instead of being in work or school. They have more recreational Marijuana available plus readily availablle hard drugs coming across the border, don't get arrested for ganging up and creating a public disturbance or worse because cops can't touch them. Theyre not interested the military. Plus, if they do go to college, they now expect a check and hope rebates continue while they party at school. Work? That's a four letter word.

I think a lot of these younger unmarried people are working and the state of the economy hasn't hit them yet. They're still using Uber and Door Dash as they please. The worst is yet to come as the cost of everything continues to rise. They feel secure in their jobs (kind of like the Twitter people did) and when a layoff hits they will be blindsided. Donald Trump gave them a great lifestyle, and those years were great, but, like the rest of us, they are not immune to Biden's insanity.

While this is a concern, every generation gets more conservative once they get some age under their belts. Those who were wild, crazy, and overwhelmingly liberals in the 1960s and 1970s are now voting Republican by a 12 point margin.

I wonder how they compare to my generation when we were that age. My contemporaries made me cringe all the time back then. We (well, they) didn’t have to go as far to be controversial then, but the current youth really have to be extreme (hair, tattoos, piercings, etc) to be noticed. We didn’t wear adult sized superhero pajamas, at least.

Generation Z and Millennials are the stupidest generations in the history of this country. They will never be able to afford to buy a house or afford that skyrocketing cost of rent that will always outpace their salaries. They will soon have to say goodby to those $12.00 Starbucks cappuccinos. Eating out will end when even a Big Mac meal deal is $25.00 at McDonalds. They won't be able to afford new electric cars that the Demon-Rats are going to force everyone to buy in the next 10 years (and certainly not the $25,000 replacement batteries). They certainly won't be able to afford gas until they are forced to buy that electric car. They will still be working when they are in their 70's, because they will never be able to afford to retire. But they will always have the "satisfaction" of knowing that they got to vote for the Demon-Rats that will destroy their lives!!!

These are the everyone gets a trophy kids. They have not had life kick them in the teeth yet, but it is coming. Notice how they are living with their parents longer because they want a certain lifestyle that they cannot afford if they have to pay rent and buy groceries. They also are marrying later which delays responsible adulthood. They are all about fun, their devices, social media, and living a life they cannot afford. Many of them work from home which I believe is a disaster. They get their work done in half the time it took them when they were at the office and they goof off the rest of the day. Who wouldn’t love that? Unfortunately, they vote for democrats and that’s where the problem lies. I don’t want the fate of the country to be controlled by these perpetual children. There are many good conservative thinkers out there trying to reach them. Hopefully, they can have a real impact because these young people need truth to be poured into them. I have seen this phenomenon myself. The smart ones will listen to reason and make a change while the drones will reject anything but their own hive mentality. They will learn soon enough that if you want to live a good full life, democrats have nothing to offer you. Some will listen and others will not.

They are as confused about their politics as they are about their sexuality. This is the crowd that works at Twitter and Google/Meta in a kiddie fantasy land of lattes and sleep pods. This is the pampered generation who still lives with their parents and refuses to get a driver's license to save the planet. The generation of man buns with beards in skinny jeans and sandals.

On top of our traditional class of multi-generational spongers, imported moochers, and oblivious layabouts, now we also have the perpetually adolescent. Many have advanced education, but also a complete lack of common sense and ambition, and an avoidance of responsibility and introspection . Teaching them to be self-aware, productive citizens will be like teaching a slug to tap-dance. Their entitled love of freebies has produced an allegiance to their Marxist overlords; it has sealed their fates.

The stupid generations voted based on the abortion issue. They like way too many people of their age think that Republicans want to ban abortion in every state. Never mind that abortion is now a state issue, not a federal issue. But the uneducated still haven't processed that bit of info yet. So, they voted that way and got it out of their system. In 2024, abortion won't be an issue because time will have passed, and the little brains of these generations will have moved on to something else by then.

The overwhelming majority of GenZ have no mortgage, no car payment and are not responsible for a family. A majority don’t pay health insurance, do not support themselves and if students, have yet to pay on any student loan and presume they shouldn’t have to. The economy is not a relevant issue for these young people. More important are abortion, green energy, legalized drugs, entitlements and silencing of any group that disagrees. Hmmm, guess they’re Democrats. What else is new.

The Republican establishment is wrong to blame former President Donald Trump for losses in Tuesday’s midterm elections, Washington Times Opinion Editor Charlie Hurt said on Wednesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow. In a wide-ranging interview, much of discussion centered on former President Trump and his role in the midterms. Hurt said that Trump-backed candidates like Ohio’s new Senator-elect J.D. Vance and Florida’s Gov. Ron DeSantis were victorious because they ran strong campaigns on MAGA issues.

There are more shakeups happening among Twitter’s top executives. Yoel Roth, Twitter’s head of trust and safety, is out, and Robin Wheeler, the head of ad sales, reportedly resigned before being convinced by CEO Elon Musk to stay. The news was initially reported by Platformer’s Zoe Schiffer and Casey Newton, and was confirmed to The Verge’s Alex Heath by two people familiar with the matter. The two executives resigned, according to Bloomberg’s Kurt Wagner, who later reported Wheeler’s change in plans. Both leaders had taken public-facing roles in these still-early days of Elon Musk’s Twitter ownership. Roth has repeatedly posted on Twitter to try and assuage user fears

Now that they’ve been stripped of their power and kicked to the streets, Twitter has been a lot more fun, interactive, and far less annoying. While others’ mileage may vary, Twitter is looking like an actual digital town square and not a place where the conversation is controlled by people who have no business being in control.

"Whether the Program constitutes good public policy is not the role of this Court to determine.

In Shakespeare’s All’s Well that Ends Well, one character observes, “Oft expectation fails and most oft there where most it promises.” And so it was for Republicans on Tuesday night. What was projected to be a “red wave” or a “red tsunami” became—at best—a red trickle. By almost any standard, the midterms proved disappointing for Republicans. In battleground House races across the country, Republican candidates faltered. The GOP looks likely to pick up only a handful of House seats; while narrow House control seems in sight, the door has closed on a 2014-size majority. The Senate may prove even more of a disappointment.

An old proverb says that the dogs bark, but the caravan goes on. In an updated version, Donald Trump plays the noisy dog as Ron DeSantis marches to victory. The Florida governor won a smashing blowout Tuesday by routing Democrat Charlie Crist by nearly 19 points, a margin that no poll predicted. He followed that with a raucous speech that was both a celebration and a skillfully worded test of national themes as he declared, “Florida is where woke goes to die.” And, likely referring to the fact that he won ­Miami-Dade County, a longtime Democratic stronghold that is 70% Latino, by double digits, DeSantis declared,

Donald Trump is continuing to treat Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis like a political enemy. On Wednesday, Trump pooh-poohed DeSantis’s huge and historic victory by insisting that his 2020 win in Florida was bigger. “Now that the Election in Florida is over, and everything went quite well, shouldn’t it be said that in 2020, I got 1.1 Million more votes in Florida than Ron D got this year, 5.7 Million to 4.6 Million? Just asking?” Trump won Florida in 2020 by 3.4-point margin, while DeSantis won reelection by a 19.45-point margin. Sorry, Trump, I think DeSantis’s victory is far more impressive. This ridiculous, ego-driven pettiness from Trump has got to stop.

First of all, it will make it a lot easier to take a lot of vehicles off the road, and we have more money in the pot now already out there that we voted for than the entire money that we spend on Amtrak, to begin with,” he said.

Atlanta — Georgia Democrats are “praying” that former President Donald Trump launches a 2024 presidential next week, saying it would be manna from heaven for Sen. Raphael Warnock in his runoff race next month against Herschel Walker. The thinking is Mr. Walker’s close ties to Mr. Trump — who prodded him to move back home to Georgia from Texas for the Senate race — will weigh down his run while the Trump announcement also energizes Democratic voters and turns off some Republicans. “If he announces like they say, the second or third week of November, before the December [runoff] election, oh, my God …we’re praying that he does it,”

Democrats' strategy of spending millions to boost pro-Trump candidates in Republican primaries appeared to pay off Tuesday as the party ended the night with a clean sweep of the races in which it chose to meddle. All six of the Republican candidates who seemingly benefited from the meddling in their primary victories fell to their Democratic opponents. Those races include a number of key House and gubernatorial races, as well as the New Hampshire Senate race. Democrats spent more than $40 million boosting those six GOP candidates, all of whom expressed support for former President Donald Trump as a leader of the Republican Party or were backed by him.
