Skip to comments.Study: Conservative baby boom will shift nation further right
Posted on 10/16/2013 5:22:54 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
A baby boom among conservatives could push the nation's politics further right in the coming decades, especially since liberals aren't having as many children, according to a new study of online dating habits of conservatives and liberals.
The study featured in a Harvard University Shorenstein Center review of recent surveys released Tuesday on how political polarization of the nation is impacting Washington's budget talks is the first to challenge left-leaning pundits who have claimed that as the white population shrinks, the GOP will become marginalized.
Instead, the study in the authoritative journal Political Behavior, conducted by scholars from Brown and Penn State University, suggested that liberals could be the endangered species in the coming decades as conservatives, typically white, have more children than liberals. And those children, this study and others show, commonly follow the politics of their parents.
Deep in the study, The Dating Preferences of Liberals and Conservatives, the authors cite indications that conservative families are having more children than liberals and that could change the political tilt of the nation, according to their simulations. And, they added, it could happen faster than their tests show.....

That plan will be F—ked away as soon as they enter the public brainwashing system.
Too little too late ... their children will grow up in a state very much like England ... The author is wrong on one major count though ,, the libs are outproducing us but they allow fewer of their children to live.
I am a baby-boomer and my generation has absolutely destroyed this republic.
If they don’t pass the Amnesty bill that is intended to bring in millions of 3rd world socialists into the USA
Most of the true and permanent destruction of America was done between about the 1930s to the 1970s.
The irreversible fatal blow was done in 1965.
The election of JFK in 1960 killed America.
Actually there are certain genetic characteristics that seem to make a man or woman predisposed to conservative thinking.
So its not entirely possible for a public indoctrination system to fully convert our population but your right, they can do a whole lot of damage to free minds.
We must control our state legislators and insist upon Constitutional education above all!
You seem to forget that among baby-boomers even liberals still had kids & family, while not fully embarrassing abortion.
I’m not buying this. The vast majority of anchor babies are on entitlements, which their illegal parents collect, thru their 18th birthday, whereabouts, they start churning out their little welfare citizens.
Pass amnesty and we’ll go down the drain much quicker than we will anyway.
especially since liberals aren't having as many children...but they control the schools, the universities, the media, the unions, all youth organizations, and the churches.
that is the caveat thou. Historically America has been the land of the free attracting folks that that wanted the chance to work and earn their own way.
If we lose that high ground then the immigration alone might overwhelm our domestic reproduction, rather than complement it. Such a change would be a fundamental cultural conquest, as indicated by the change.
“Pass amnesty and well go down the drain much quicker than we will anyway.”
The real issue is not the breeding patterns of liberals or conservatives, its how many people are sucked into the entitlement trap. These are the future voters.
Assuming that votes matter, how quaint. It doesn’t matter if republicans get elected to office if they won’t reform anything once they get there.
“the libs are outproducing us but they allow fewer of their children to live.”
These stories are lies to prevent Americans from defending their country; libs are still out-reproducing us, and the birth rate for young educated whites is nearly 0. While the permanent unassimilated AMERICAN underclass is out-breeding us, they are importing millions more every year (and they are breeding as well). Northern NJ is facing the same fate as southern California; American-Americans are getting few & far between, and there is no “next generation” of them.
If the pipe dream in this story was true, Obama wouldn’t have been elected; he certainly wouldn’t have been re-elected.
Even if the children of most conservatives turned out conservatives themselves, it wouldn’t make up for all the new liberal voters created by the parasite class. Demographics has become destiny in America.
“suggested that liberals could be the endangered species in the coming decades as conservatives, typically white, have more children than liberals. And those children, this study and others show, commonly follow the politics of their parents.”
Barack Obama was elected by white liberals, and most young conservatives I know have no children. They feel they can’t afford them, and in the meantime they subsidize the white trash babies that have followed the black underclass onto the gravy train. Conservatives are not winning the demographic war, and these stories are put out there to prevent/dull any reaction.
Democrats wrote a law to replace the American voter.
From unionizing government, to Vietnam, to the 1965 Immigration Act, JFK was the end of us.
However, if there is one man who can take the most credit for the 1965 act, it is John F. Kennedy. Kennedy seems to have inherited the resentment his father Joseph felt as an outsider in Bostons WASP aristocracy. He voted against the McCarran-Walter Act of 1952, and supported various refugee acts throughout the 1950s. In 1958 he wrote a book, A Nation of Immigrants, which attacked the quota system as illogical and without purpose, and the book served as Kennedys blueprint for immigration reform after he became president in 1960. In the summer of 1963, Kennedy sent Congress a proposal calling for the elimination of the national origins quota system. He wanted immigrants admitted on the basis of family reunification and needed skills, without regard to national origin. After his assassination in November, his brother Robert took up the cause of immigration reform, calling it JFKs legacy. In the forward to a revised edition of A Nation of Immigrants, issued in 1964 to gain support for the new law, he wrote, I know of no cause which President Kennedy championed more warmly than the improvement of our immigration policies. Sold as a memorial to JFK, there was very little opposition to what became known as the Immigration Act of 1965.
Its why I refuse to ever use the term "Greatest Generation."
What does that matter?The Liberals will just pass an amnesty and giving all of these present illegal aliens full citizenship allowing them to vote in all National elections.
This country is toast and some people just don’t want to accept that.
An interesting side effect is that the future of the left is going to be "Idiocracy", while the children of the right will be "the elite."
I do suspect however that a number of conservative born children will betray their parents and see the opportunity to lead the masses of idiots through demagoguery.
It is why the ultra liberal, propaganda artist, Tom Brokaw, created it.
My daughter graduated from a very conservative college and almost all of her friends are having an average of three children and one is having her sixth.
Those will will grow up being propagandized by the MSM and public schools and college until they are leftists.
Didn’t you mean 1964 with lbj?
Lets hope they get no influence form the weakest generation the nation has yet produced- Baby Boomers.
Only if America jobs return.
For real. American jobs.
Read the article, it’s not about us in the “baby boom” generation (1945-1964) but about a new baby boom among conservatives.
More than that.
America has exported a huge amount of jobs which used to be done by AMERICAN REPUBLICANS as well as democrats.
The problem with this is, when US jobs go overseas, then everyone becomes a democrat, and broke.
We need to stop sending US jobs overseas, and bring them home.
Fracking is a good thing. But there are millions of US jobs which are being outsourced to foreigners, not one of which votes Republican.
Bring back US jobs.
A bunch of them.
If we bring back US jobs, we bring back Republicans.
Yup. I’ve been aware of that and as a boomer myself apologize to my two sons about it since Bill Clinton. The cretins running this country are the same a$$ holes that spit on me as I transited SFO on the way home on leave in 1972.
The other danger than just the illegals’ voting power is the that passing amnesty will be just another green flag for millions more to invade our country. Then, there would be the danger of Dream Acting them into our military to serve along with the red state hating feminists and homos that were recently been given a red carpet welcome.
Really? Obama gets 66% of a military avoiding generation’s vote and you want to say that is better than the generation that voted for Nixon and produced almost 9.5 million veterans?
“Historically America has been the land of the free...”
It’s still the land of the free...lunch.
“Its still the land of the free...lunch.”
Only for a few, and only for the time the slaves choose to work.
hence the reason for Common Core
“Common Core” Is still essentially voluntary, its up to use to see to it that our state legislators assert themselves, in defining what is taught on the public dollar.
I did my part...5 spawnies
I have heard this for years. Children go to school. Then there is peer pressure. It doesn’t work.
Maybe it was over before than, considering JFK was to the right of Nixon.
Why should anyone be proud of voting for Nixon? The idea he was a conservative is laughable. Noam Chomsky consider him one of the three great liberal presidents. And he may have been the worst. The U.S, would have been better of if McGovern got elected. At least the left would have to take them blame. We should dig up Nixon’s grave and send him to China with his commie buddies. He was a total traitor to this country.
If that's true, then the election of Tricky Dick would not have been far behind. Or maybe even a little ahead.
>> I did my part...5 spawnies
So there may be a cure for Liberalism through genetic therapy and engineering.
Don't you mean the off-year election in 1963?
All they have to do is soften the edges of each subsequent generation. and suddenly you end up in 2013.
When you pay poor people on welfare for punching out babies and leave the back door open for low skill immigrants, there is no way we are doing anything but swirling the drain to socialism followed by tyranny.
Hooray. White conservatives should have at least five children each — that would push us far ahead of the parasite class and the liberals. It’s a matter of survival. BTW, this is not unheard of India’s Hindus continue to have high birth rates to keep Muslims from taking over the country through higher birth rates.
