Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
but rarely borne out in polling. reagan won the young voters in the 80s, and that cohort of late boomers-early x'ers is still voting for him today. while political realignments do happen, people's political beliefs are surprisingly durable.

voters under 35 are the most democratic generation in modern history, and liberal on a broad range of issues. as the bulk of gen y moves into the voting pool, that effect will be hard to miss.

now whether that leads to a stronger democratic party, or a growing split b/w them and a left minor party depends on what democrats do with this crisis.
