Guess we were right in the 60's: "Don't trust anyone over 30."And that's why observations don't reflect reality. In 2016 a full 28% (!) of people who voted fit in the demographic of age 45+ AND voted for Trump. Compare that to about 16% of people who voted fitting in the demographic of age 18-39 and voting Trump. Boomers and their parents contributed to Trumps election at a rate about 1.75x that of Gen X and Gen Y.
