How birth year influenced your politics

     

      We all make assumptions about voting patterns based on the age of voters.  We assume younger voters are more likely to vote Democrat and older voters more likely to vote Republican.  These patterns don't necessarily hold when you breakdown the age cohorts more precisely.  Baby Boomers are still more likely to vote Democrat even though they are becoming senior citizens and  those born from 1960 to the late 1970's are more likely to vote Republican.  Check out this reality at this link.
You can slide the bar to any specific birth year to see how voters born in your year have been voting.
