GUEST,Claymore BS: What are Young Conservatives Made Of? (81* d) RE: BS: What are Young Conservatives Made Of? 30 Jul 03


I'm not sure that I would agree with any of the views expressed above, pro or con. And since the title deals with "young" conservatives, I'm not sure that an old conservative could answer the question. But to those who really care to understand the issue I woud invite them to research the polls presented at the recent Democratic Leadership Conference held last week in Philadelphia. C-SPAN radio carried the results in their entirety, and several papers carried a synopsis.

While I was only listening while driving, and therefore unable to take notes, the comments of the Democrat pollsters, did not bode well for the Democrats.

my recollection was that the new conservatives are coming primarily from the young married white males, young married females of any race, people with jobs in the salary range of $25,000 to $40,000, suburbanites, people with college educations or "professional credentials", etc. In addition, the Democratic party is almost evenly devided between conservative Democrats and liberals.

In short, his message is that if the Democrats select a liberal candidate for President, (ala Mondale, McGovern, Dukakis) they will repeat the "home state and DC" voter tally.

But I digress; perhaps someone who is not interested in a diatribe, could find and present the above poll results as a blue clicky. Since it is a Democrat pollster, it might be interesting for you folks to see what you are up against. Because if the new young conservatives are people who can get a higher education, find and keep a well-paying job, and raise children in intact families, you truely are in trouble...
