A recent New York Times poll found that 59% of those aged 45 to 64 plan on voting for Republicans in this coming midterm election.
Republicans also have an advantage among likely voters – they hold a 49%-45% lead in the poll.
Liberals lashed out at the poll and Gen Xers for showing support for Republicans.

1. This isn’t quite the right age spread for GenX, so there’s that.
2. But seriously does no one else remember preppies and pearls, white supremacist 50s retro BS, “Greed is Good”, and cocaine? That there are are Republicans regressives amongst us should not be that surprising. https://t.co/tW6T86elds

Because they’re 45 to 64, old enough that most of the white middle class ones own homes and young enough that few of them are living on fixed incomes.
And for all that Gen Xers like to see themselves as cool slackers, the generation also produced people like Ted Cruz. https://t.co/QFmzglI25O

I’m not sure why this is a surprise anymore. Who was majority at Jan 6 insurrection? Gen-X. Into Qanon? Causing a ruckus at school board meetings? Anti-vax? Alex Jones supporters? All Gen-X heavy. https://t.co/hBlJuM3X8Q

The poll also found Donald Trump leading Brandon in a hypothetical rematch in 2024.
Former President Trump leads President Brandon by 1 point in a hypothetical rematch, according to a New York Times-Siena College poll published Monday.
Trump leads Brandon, 45 to 44 percent, when likely voters were asked whom they would support if the 2024 presidential election were held today.
That’s roughly in line with previous polling showing Trump leading Brandon, Vice President Harris and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in hypothetical match-ups.
Liberals sense a red wave is coming!
