Core values are formulated in young adulthood and don't change very often. The myth of the average voter drifting rightward as he ages is just that, a myth. He just appears more conservative relative to the new younger, more liberal generations that follow.

Even younger Republicans eschew the party line on social issues. The party may be able to adhere to its outdated economic models for years to come but it will have to drift leftward on many social issues or be left in the dust.
