That margin among voters age 45+ is historically (and catastrophically) low for the @GOP.

Trump鈥檚 fear and loathing hasn鈥檛 won over the majority of America.
鈥淲e can't replace all of those people by simply picking up farm country and the Iron range of Minnesota because, frankly, there's more growth in suburban areas than there is in rural areas.鈥 cnn.com/2018/11/12/pol鈥
As Republicans attack Social Security, Medicare and Obamacare, they鈥檙e also attacking their base.
The problem with the GOP is that they have relied on propaganda to sell unpopular policy. They get people on their side by spreading fear of immigrants and other social issues. They know that cutting SS, Medicare and healthcare in general are extremely unpopular.
Could it be that GOP gave tax breaks to billionaires/corporations and want to pay for it by slashing SS, Medicare, and Medicaid? Could it be that the GOP refuses to put a check on blatant corruption in the Trump WH? Could it be the climate science denial? It's all of the above.
You can鈥檛 cater to white supremacists and also get the votes of younger Americans. There鈥檚 nothing inspirational about this GOP.
The 67% vote by young people for Dems is largest in decades, by a big margin. And turnout was higher although donr have those numbers. pic.twitter.com/KWLFfBxbK9
Get ready for a bunch of "the polls are wrong" tweets, despite the polls having predicted the mid terms (and HRC's margin of victory in the 2016 popular vote) very well.
Every day of Trump will continue the slide. Was a Republican all my life but never again
Try not lying to people.
That's why the current Republican party doesn't want to count all votes and will try to gerrymander every state behind recognition. The party has fallen so far when they decided to become a cult of Trump worshippers.
I guess openly embracing Nazis, KKK, White Suprmacists, putting brown refugee babies in prisons separated from their parents isn't good politics. Also blowing up the debt and deficit, taking healthcare from people. So many good ideas on your side Frank. Who knew.
Most people of my acquaintance who are over 65 are anti trump and most definitely not republican!
Sad that it is like this but not surprising due to the overly liberal/socialist teaching within our school systems. Conservative educators are out numbered 10-1 and to remain safe they tend to not speak their minds on school grounds.
Baby boomers woke up and realized if they keep GOP in control their Social Security and Medicare is threatened. It will only get worse if GOP insist on deny people affordable healthcare.
The next generation is not voting GOP.
Better get to work fashioning some new dog whistles!
Whether it happens in 2 years or 6, the GOP will need a post Trump realignment. He鈥檚 a stop gap. But at least whatever happens will happen with a conservative Supreme Court.
The GOP has lost any pretense of being a national party. It is shrinking rapidly as the politics of fear and the alt-right news bubble insulates them from reality. Once Texas flips over the next decade its game over
Can you imagine if there wasn鈥檛 a whole lot of gerrymandering?
Well it was a blue wave after all! We flipped Flake鈥檚 seat and there鈥檚 still a small chance that Nelson pulls through. Gillum not so much. Impossible spread to close.
What's your point? Fewer & fewer real American's will ever vote for the GOP. Not a surprise to any real American who believes in our beloved Country, our Democracy & our Constitution.
As you get older, you鈥檒l grow more conservative, they told us. Now I鈥檓 a parent, and instead I鈥檓 a Leftist.
Father and stepfather both age 80 were life long Republicans. No more!
The American neo nazi Party (fka the gop) deserves far worse. Thank god the decent majority of people in this country have seen them for what they are and are starting to vote accordingly.
GOP have insulted everyone but NRA and rich donors. The rest of us are pissed
Wow. This is interesting. Trump has destroyed the GOP for the next generation. They will win in regional areas, but they are in trouble.
Guess the dems staying on point with healthcare message made a difference.
and how many elections do you see 350,000 more votes for a #republican governor in a county over same party senator? #ArizonaElection #StopTheSteal #MaricopaCounty #VoterID now. right now @realDonaldTrump
...and richly deserved.
I feel like looking at these numbers, unless the @GOP radically disenfranchises a lot of voters, they will be losing a generation of voters. Time for this party to die. They don鈥檛 deserve to lead.
Young people, you have the power...use it. #vote
You should be proud. All the lies you have crafted, all the marginal peoples you have scapegoated have finally retaliated and the party you helped create is in decline! The culture war was lost in the 60s and it's take this long for you all to see it. LET IT GO! pic.twitter.com/p2N2hryyVO
Smells like hope.
Wait, I thought it was a great election for the Republican Party. The leader of the party said so.

Pity. Someone should have warned the GOP. Oh, wait.
Maybe trying to take away healthcare wasn鈥檛 a good idea?
good job all you 18 thru 29 yr olds, feels good to win especially when your future is at stake.
Gen X will bring the GOP to their knees.
If GOP overlooks this younger demographic the party will move toward extinction.
The dumbing-down of America is nearly complete.. anybody who votes for these fucktard Democrats who are trying to turn the United States into Venezuela are either complicit in the crime or ignorant as fuck..
Well when you鈥檙e the party of Old WhitePeople, you tend to turn off a much younger generation. Keep trying to shore up wins with that smaller base you鈥檝e got.
Koch candidates did poorly, are you sad?
It isn't doing anything to convince me. It looks like a party that is making up absurd conspiracy theories to stoke hatred, building a platform around limiting the rights of others, and is doing anything - anything at any cost - to take power. Are greed and power core values?
Based on this exit poll it would seem the Dems would have won the house 435-0
It's almost as if older people are concerned about healthcare and don't believe those that are aging should be charged more! Crazy!
Plus how鈥檚 the caravan coming? FAKENEWS
The GOP is a dying party and this is from an Independent who has voted for candidates of both major parties.
But also, they've lost most of a generation. Republicans are relying heavily on aging Boomers. They'll have to change to survive at some point. I know your network has worked really hard to deceive my parents' generation, but it won't work the same way on us, Frank.
Who are those 32% & 39% of young voters who believe @gop is incapable of electing a leader that isn't 1. immature 2. ignorant 3. low class 4. obnoxious 5. corrupt 6. dishonest 7. cowardly 8. racist 9. emotionally challenged & 10. dangerous like @potus @realDonaldTrump? #FBRParty
Repubs need a rebuild that is more inclusive, appealing to concerns of younger voters while maintaining the values of our 鈥渃onstitutional republic鈥. Not difficult just takes leadership, vision, integrity and hard work.
Wonder what happened.
鈥淗istorically and Catastrophically Low鈥

We are coming bitch鈥. @realDonaldTrump
They have no idea about how a country survives. They will have to live with the consequences. Education is failing at every level.
Wouldn鈥檛 be surprised if #鈥檚 shift back once trump is gone. The more he speaks, tweets, holds crazed hate rallies, the more he loses voters across all age groups. He is uniting the country鈥攊n disgust & distrust of GOP cowards who enable him.
And that's a beautiful thing Frank.
Interesting! I鈥檝e moved from Independent to Democrat over the last 2 elections in the 65+ category. White, college, retired. I fail to understand how the 65+ group can vote 50-48 with what the R鈥檚 are doing and saying!
Older Republican voters bail on GOP.
Trump's older, whiter base won't like hearing this, but the rest of the country just isn't in to you & your boy.

Republicans in the future will look at Trump's time now as them eating the seed corn of the future to have their last meal today.

Bring on the @DanCrenshawTX's.
The sky is falling, says Frank Luntz.
He has disenfranchised just about everybody except for white and male aged 20 to 80.
There will be 3 million fewer Baby Boomers by the time Election Day 2020 arrives
gee. Most of us former Republicans knew that several elections ago. Glad you finally learned that.
People don鈥檛 like to be lied to. That鈥檚 why
younger want FREEBIES..that's why vote Democrat
Add to that the well known reproductive limitations and age span of these old white men, and you get young people who have to wait and stay hungry, while #Trump #KochBrothers #Mercers #Sacklers congenital #Oligarchs hold on to power. Throw in #WhiteSupremacy + #authoritarianism
Not surprising. It's been almost 30 years since the last successful GOP president left office. Since then, it's been: 4 years of the first disastrous Bush, 8 years of Clinton, 8 years of the second disastrous Bush, 8 years of Obama, and now 2 years of THIS.
@tombedell @awiley90 Lets send that caravan of old white men out of the country and make it 鈥淣o country for Old men鈥
White people who haven鈥檛 graduated from college are the GOP demographic. (Meanwhile, go young people!)
Because these people are the ones that swing every midterm.

They did the same thing in 2006.

How does Frank Luntz get paid?
馃毃馃敟 Consistent cross tabs leading into midterms spelling existential doom is worldview of aging white @gop #patriarchy: +/-75% consistently shared more women in power & government would NOT be a good thing! Worse: Adam鈥檚 rib knuckle-dragging goes apocalyptic beyond caucasians 馃嚭馃嚫
The GOP adoption of Trumpism is proving to be a temporary, Pyrrhic victory.
Wow. GOP disaster. If 2020 turnout is higher than 2018鈥揳nd it will be-it鈥檚 hard to see this not getting worse for them.
It must make you sad, Frank. To see your beloved GOP slip through your fingers. And you have tried so hard your entire life to justify the immorality of a party that has metasticized into a Constitutional cancer. How are you gonna message your way back to popularity?
Tell them to stop giving tax cuts to rich people and leave SS and Medicare alone.
The GOP is getting older, whiter, more male, more Christian, more extreme, less rational, and less compassionate. #nvfr
If you look at the percentages -- and given the closeness of the midterm elections -- the GOP has far more upside in terms of capturing the 70-90% of non-white Democrat votes going forward. Tough for the Dems to improve on 90%.
That's because as we get older we get tired of the Republican bullshit and failed promises.
It doesn鈥檛 matter as long as #Gerrymandering is still allowed!
That poll only reflects people that would talk to the pollsters. It probably uses "white" improperly. It also shows how many people are still in their parent's houses, never having seen their paychecks after taxes have been removed.
It would be interesting if you can find any data on number of people who switch partys as they age or income
The only demographic is uneducated white males... go figure.
Well, how about that. Some of them be gettin鈥 their groove back.
What did you expect? Trump is sinking the party.
Bring on the catastrophe. Pendulums swing.
And the children will lead them...
The end of the GOP is coming.
If I were a cynical woman I'd look at that and say the Republicans have a vested interest in defunding education.
They will be in decline for a very long while.
Gee, I wonder if going after seniors' Social Security and Medicare might have something to do with that...
Future doesn鈥檛 look very bright for GOP Frank 馃榾
But you've got 30 neo-Nazis hitting 18 by 2020 in Baraboo, so it's not all bad
It鈥檚 going to get worse for the GOP.
