Why are "Gen-Xer's" taking a hard right turn?

Don't look now, but they're not. This is purely wishful thinking on the part of someone with such a distorted view that they would write: "After forty years of leftist neo-socialist propaganda being forced down the American people's collective throats

For instance, in an independent poll poll in New Jersey, Gen-Xers described themselves as:

Conservative: 18%
Liberal: 22%

They think "Government should do more to solve problems" with a 60% agreement rate. That compares with 48% of Boomers and 37% of Matures.

What's that? Oh, New Jersey doesn't count. Got it. Do you have some actual data to back up this absurd claim, or are you, as so many of your ilk, satisfied to say:
