Fighting for the Status Quo

I've posted this information before, but it is worth posting again as it becomes increasingly obvious that the the United States is locked in a battle between the older generations who want to protect the pre-Internet status quo and the younger generations who live in the post-Internet reality.

Percentage of Americans who believe the Constitution should be interpreted based on its meaning in current times, by age:

18-29: 62%
30-49: 54%
50-64: 44%
65-plus: 35%
