As expected, analysis of election breakdown shows older voters got the Tories in. Is their aim to hold their assets, or an aim for nostalgia?

    Older voters tend to be more threatened by a changing world.  So they tend to vote to try to roll back the clock.

    But in the U.K., it was also younger voters who got the Tories in by splitting among the opposition parties.  There were a significant number of seats where Labour plus Liberal Democrat votes were a clear majority of the total votes.

    I thought it was a plurality of all voters. Yes, I'm quite sure that's the way it works.

    The age of a voter has no legal significance as far as elections go.
