Exit polls showed Gore only winning 18-29 year olds 48-46 but also beating Bush 50-47 with 65+|voters.

More specifically the video game stuff coupled with Tipper Gore's stuff turned off a lot of 18-29 year old males.

Seniors in 2000 were a different batch. A lot of over-65's still remembered the New Deal and WWII.

Up until fairly recently, weren't middle aged voters the most Republican, rather than olds?

My magnum opus is now complete.  Read the complete "The Adventures of Hobo Orgy Guy & Blondie" (now in paperback).

Watch Dave being briefed by the mods.

Being a moderator is basically like one giant party.  Except you're the one ruining the party and everyone hates you.

I believe so. And Generation X is more Republican than the baby boomers, I believe.

Social security was a big issue in 2000. Al Gore wanted to put some of the money from the surplus into a social security "lockbox" to keep the program solvent for another few decades. Bush wanted to partially privatize it.
