Older Americans Shifting Toward The Republican Party: Study

Older Americans Shifting Toward The Republican Party: Study

Commented Mar 26, 2014 at 20:32:18 in Politics

“I don't know where they got their statistics but I am a senior citizen who lives in Florida and I, and all of my friends, who were once Republicans, have all voted Democrat for the last couple of elections. The Republican party is now the party of "mean" and "I've got mine so to heck with you". We probably won't be going back anytime soon.”

“If Texas voters decide to secede from the union and rejoin Mexico, should Putin send troops over here to make things right? I don't think the republicans would be happy with that scenario. The Crimean people voted to join Russia didn't they?”

catboycolo on Mar 19, 2014 at 13:42:19

“There is some question about the election and…oh…the massing of unmarked but obviously Russian troops and weapons. You know, little stuff like that.”

“There are plenty of us in Florida who are just as shocked as Don Lemon about this verdict but we just have to get all of those people off their duffs to vote! The majority of voters in this state are old white people (of which I am one) who follow lockstep with Fox News ( of which I DO NOT). I made hundred of phone calls for Organizing for Obama and guess what... he won the state of Florida. We have a long road ahead of us but please don't judge all of us by what you see on the news.”

“That's the way Pat! Kudos to you!!!

I live in North Carolina and we too have our share of challenges. I was around in the last Civil Rights struggles and NEVER were there 100,000 marchers on our state capital as there was 2 weekends ago! We are fighting hard!

Strength to you my fellow traveler....we can, and must turn this around!”

“I have been a registered Republican for over 50 years but have only voted for Democrats for the past 10. Yes, this party left me behind too. The only reason that I haven't changed my party affiliation is that when I get the surveys from the GOP I can fill in the answers and REALLY tell them how I feel and when they ask for a donation I can tell them that I already gave - to a Democrat! When I get the calls to attend a GOP town hall I tell them " I would rather get a colonoscopy". The turn that this party has taken is really alarming and more people need to speak up about it.”

“Agreed, to me it used to be we were all a little Democratic, a little Republican and completely independent.

Now I can in no way claim any Republicanism. Maybe that is what they wanted to secede from regular folk.”

“well stated, couldn't agree more. What once stood for at times reasonable fiscal conservative values, while still acknowledging at least some of the needs of the poorest Americans, is gone. In its place is this radical revisionist party, one that wants to turn back the hands of time, one that says government is the problem, yet they are for big government when it suits their ideology.”

Willow712 on Feb 10, 2014 at 23:09:30

“My problem isn't with the extremists on the right, but the moderates who voted in lockstep with the extreme right, made it a Congress that is hopeless, and then the moderates whine that the extreme right is horrible. The moderates voted with the right wing over and over again, just for their job. I would respect so much more a moderate that actually stood up, said what was right or wrong, even if they were primaried. Somebody needs to stand up to them. But until just recently, even the moderates voted with the right. You just can't vote with the extremists, then whine that they are going to primary you, and expect sympathy. That's where I am with this. We need to get rid of the extremists on the right, and pull this rug back to center. But we're never going to get it done unless the moderates stand up for themselves.”

“I, as a GOP since registering to vote in the 1970's, changed my registration when I heard Bush saying "Is our children learning?". I figured, if he was an example of the education system, that the GOP was doomed and our children obviously are not learning. :) F/F'ed”

“I was a Republican, too, until I realized how much I lost when Reagan came into office. It was downhill from there for women, the poor, the elderly, unions, and the working middle class. War was quietly declared on all of these and it continues today.”

“Isn't it sad that you feel that way? I do think that switching the party affiliation is important, only because you should vote for the candidate you think is better qualified in the primary. That way the best democrat is actually running. (Unless you're in a state that has open primaries. In that case, keep up the good work!)”

“As a business owner, I have in the past voted Republican. Today, I now realize that a child's life is more important than my bottom line. According to a Harvard study, 45,000 Americans die each year due to a lack of health care insurance. I no longer want to be complicit in their death by accepting the tenets of the Republican's Platform. The plain and simple truth, the ACA gives those people life.”
