THE IOWA DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS was messy, but revealing. Young voters voted for the oldest candidate, Bernie Sanders (78), and older voters preferred the youngest candidate, Pete Buttigieg (38). Given that Iowa is not a typical U.S. state, as far as demographics go, maybe the pattern will not be repeated in other state primaries. Still, the Iowa caucus results are interesting considering the projected demographic patterns for the 2020-2030 decade.
