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.
