Seniors lean Republican, young people more Democratic, right? Not so much

Republicans have a problem with young people 18-29. Democrats have a problem with seniors over 65. The story taken from this dichotomy is popular and simple enough: Republicans are the party of crusty old folks who are going to die, and Democrats are the party of the youth, who will lead a continued resurgence into office.

I’m not so sure about this story; the generational math is different than you might think. [cont.]
