    Now if only our elected leaders saw it this way and stopped making laws preventing private citizens from doing as they please.

    I see the two studies related to the Presidents while they were in high school.
    As a side note, it was my observation that my chemistry and physics students were more conservative than the average student.

    So during the 1990's, they had little good to say about Clinton's personal life.
    Since I retired in 2009, I saw them change as a backlash to the intrusion of conservatism into people's private lives.

    It should be interesting to see how the young are measured in let's say 2020 a few years after Obama .

    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.
    So how about j, he shifting left on morals, or staying a steadfast Puritan?

    I'd have figured more like 50-50 split. Also, pretty shocked a majority think doctor assisted suicide is morally OK.
    I'm more surprised by suicide climbing from 13 to 19--or bothered--or both--this is a 46% increase.
    I have some good guesses but don't want to get jumped for them .

    Nope, no extremes. Though I guess it could look that way to people on the extremes.

    That makes no sense whatsoever. You moved from the leftist to the rightist. Should have stopped in the middle.
