The Boomers’ War

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I can already hear Keith getting mad at me.

As far as I know though, there is no issue in American politics that is more divisive across generational lines than Israel / Palestine. It is also due to media consumption habits.


There is a clear generational divide when it comes to how American voters perceive the war in Israel, according to a slew of new polling data. …

The Israel-Hamas war “is not an issue split by party, but by age and by media consumption,” says Mark Penn, CEO of Stagwell and chairman of The Harris Poll. …

Americans over the age of 65 are nearly unanimous in “Standing With Israel.” This is the main reason why Israel has such a stranglehold over our government. Older people are more likely to vote in elections. Older people are also vastly overrepresented in Congress.

I’m not saying that Boomers are bad people.

I’m saying they get their news from cable television, talk radio and Facebook. They are far more likely to be Dispensationalists. They are the audience for television attack ads.

The Messenger:

This month’s Harvard CAPS / Harris poll shows how wide the divide has grown. Asked whether they support Israel or Hamas, those over 65 years of age sided with Israel, 95% to 5%. The generations who in their day protested the Vietnam War and lived through the Watergate scandal now nearly universally side with Israel. Some of them may remember the 1973 War when Israel was attacked by thousands of tanks in a surprise multi-country invasion, as well as the subsequent attempts made by many American presidents to find a peace that would both recognize Israel and give Palestinians a state of their own. To them, the idea that they would side with an Islamic fundamentalist group bent on wiping out Jews and Israel is an absurdity.

Now let’s look at the views of those ages 18 to 24. They support Israel over Hamas by the thinnest of margins, 52/48. These students were mostly born after 9/11 and have no memory of when America was attacked. They missed Schindler’s List and have little or no connection to World War II and the Holocaust. They simply have little to no knowledge about the extermination of 6 million Jews in gas chambers and the post-war return of the Jewish people to their ancient homeland. …

The generational divide shows up in poll after poll.

Joe Biden’s approval rating has crashed among Democrats since the war broke out in Israel:


Before this happened, Joe Biden’s approval rating with young voters had sunk so low that Trump was beating him in the polls. It is the main reason why Trump is so much more competitive against Biden in 2024. Younger voters are blackpilled on Joe Biden.

Former President Trump leads President Biden by 2 points in a hypothetical 2024 general election match-up and is improving his standing among young voters, according to a poll released Friday. 

The Emerson College poll showed Trump ahead with 47 percent support to Biden’s 45 percent, with 8 percent undecided. That’s up 2 points for Trump compared to Emerson’s poll from last month, while Biden’s support remained the same. …

Pollsters found Trump performing better than Biden among the youngest voters, leading the incumbent among 18-to-29-year-olds by about 2 points, 45.2 percent to 42.9 percent. The former president also leads among 30-to-39-year-olds by about 11 points, 49.6 percent to 38.5 percent.  …

Finally, take a look at this:

The number in favor dropped to 32 percent when it came to putting American boots on the ground, except among Republicans among whom more supported the idea than opposed it. …

When it comes to putting actual boots on the ground fighting side by side with Israel in a hot war, only 32% of Americans support the idea. 53% of Democrats, 51% of Independents and 36% of Republicans are opposed to it. 46% of Republicans though support fighting with Israel.
