Eighty percent of baby boomers are pessimistic about the current direction of the United States, according to the Pew Research Center's Social & Demographic Trends study released Monday.
The boomer generation consists of adults between the ages of 45 and 64, according to the The Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan think tank.
In contrast, the study found only 60% of millennials -- individuals between the ages of 18 and 29 -- had a bleak view of the way things are going today.
And about 76% of respondents older than baby boomers, also called the "greatest generation," were dissatisfied with the status quo. - CNN/PEW
The headline is: "New study finds baby boomers are in a funk"
The story underneath: of the 1500 people they polled, very few are satisfied with the direction the country is taking.
An interesting hint:
Another theory is that the idealistic boomers experienced their prime during their youth in 1960s when they fought for civil and women's rights. Now, they may be finding they were unable to complete the societal reforms they had envisioned.
"They may have set themselves up for disappointment," Taylor said.
Perhaps millennials and Xers are doing the same thing by following the same stupid ideology as the boomers.
