The only reason there is a modest correlation between age and support for Donald Trump among men is because older generational cohorts are whiter than younger ones are. Once race is taken into account, the relationship vanishes among whites, is revealed to be weak among Hispanics and Asians, and acutely inverts among blacks and Jews. From an enormous ongoing Reuters-Ipsos that commenced a month into Trump’s presidency, his approval among men by age and race:
The stark generational contrast among blacks and Jews is remarkable. Black and Jewish men under 35 years old are twice as likely to support Trump as black and Jewish men over 65 are. Among Jewish men under 50, it’s a coin toss as to whether they’ll be pro- or anti-Trump. R-I doesn’t query about community type, but given that Jews are significantly more heavily concentrated in urban areas than white gentiles are, it’s conceivable that urban/suburban/rural Jewish men express greater support for Trump than urban/suburban/rural white gentile men do.
And as the subsequent graph reveals, there is a chasm separating the way young Jewish men and young Jewish women feel about the president. A similar gap exists among young white gentile men and women.
The conventional narrative about opposition to the right from younger people holds up better among women, with blacks the only ones to buck the trend (and from such a small base of support anyway):
My conjecture about to the primary force driving what is beginning to look like a paradigmatical shift in the relationship between age and political orientation among men: The increasing ideological and intellectual totalitarianism of the left. To be on the left increasingly means demanding you not say this, you not think that, you not question this, you not test that, you not consider this, you not challenge that. Doubly so if you are a man, doubly so if you are white, and quadruply so if you are a white man.
It is, in short, to repeat over and over and over again “This is NOT okay“. The life of a bitter vinegar-drinking scold is not one that appeals much to young men.
