    People are leaving religion as they get older. From page two of the paper quoted above:

    Preferring no religion is a very widespread trend, evident in most major subpopulations. We show this for gender, race, age, education, region, and political views in Table 1.
    People of all ages, races, regions and education levels are increasingly turning away from identifying with organized religion. That doesn't necessarily mean they are turning away from belief, but that doesn't really matter for our purposes. As a progressive activist community, what matters is that when people stop self-identifying with organized religion, they stop voting Republican and stop being conservative.
