Generally, what conversion do you think happens more often with citizens? Do they convert more often from Republican to Democrat or from Democrat to Republican?

D to R conversion is better known as growing up.

I think on a fiscal standpoint, people are becoming more conservative. But on a social scale, people are becoming more liberal.

D to R. Look at voting demographics. Before people get jobs, have kids, etc they are MUCH more likely to be liberal. At least that's how I interpret the data

Women in particular tend to become more conservative with marriage and kids.

Something I heard a while back... If you're a republican under 30 you have no heart, if you're a democrat over age 30 you have no brain.

I was raised D, went into the Marines and found out how the world really works and became R. Got sick of the RINOs last year and became a libertarian.

D to r. When people work they begin to realize that they don't want to support the deadbeats with their own money.

Imagine if we just matched up families and you had to drive over to their house to drop off the check. Welfare would be gone in nothing flat.

Democrat to Republican. Republicans go Libertarian or Independent.

Since your IQ tends to decrease as you age, people move Right.

Or maybe since knowledge increases with age it's the other way...

Almost every current D I know was a R until all of the tea party stuff came about and then they felt that the Republican Party changed and it wasn't about small govt it was about rich people fucking over poor people.

I hear D to R a lot, rarely the other way around, especially in NY. However, wen I hear people go from R to D they aren't the type of people I want to hold the title of R
