    The one that surprises me a bit is divorce - only 20% see it as morally wrong. I'd have figured more like 50-50 split. Also, pretty shocked a majority think doctor assisted suicide is morally OK.

    Doesn't surprise me. My generation is pretty liberal.

    that is because they haven't grown up yet to see the consequences of some of these actions.

    Are you saying that yer a better person than young liberals on social issues as an older conservative judge of them?

    Don't worry ludin--young liberals also don't vote--so yer GOP will continue to ruin DC until at least 2022 .

    In 2001, only 53% thought sex between an unmarried man and a woman was moral? Wow. This shifts shows America is far less about what other people are doing with their lives and, in this case, shows a marked decline in hypocrisy. Unless anyone here thinks 47% of Americans never had sex before marriage as of 2001?

    as the saying goes.

    If You Are Not a Liberal at 25, You Have No Heart. If You Are Not a Conservative at 35 You Have No Brain.

    It doesn't surprise me. I think many are adopting a "live and let live" attitude so long as the views of others aren't forced upon us as something to be personally morally accepted.

    I voted for McGovern, Ford, Reagan, then all DEMs.
    The 1983 tax cuts and Reagan's turn to the Christian Right after his near assassination death changed me forever for one.
    So just the opposite of you .

    Not really, given the deterioration of the country that liberals moan about the conservative can just point at these statistics and say "told ya so."

    This is on par with progressives cheering the increasing progressive lean of the American public school system over the last 40 years while also decrying the piss poor performance of American schools.

    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.
