In 2016, without any doubt baby boomers will return to power in the country without mattering whether it’s Trump or Hillary. With Obama leaving the white house, the break that America had got from the boomers would come to an end.
Obama s campaign emphasised on the dialogue, consensus and pragmatism which was meant to rebuke the boomer tendencies, which was practised by the men of white house including George W Bush and Clinton.
The phenomenon of the Baby Boom had its official beginning on the 1st January 1946 and was the only demographic event which had its that importance in the history of USA. The boomer generation had 77 million members and they are believed to wrap up American culture like no other generation before nor after. The boomer generation was followed by X Generation (it includes those born from 1960- to the early 1980) and then the Millennials (it includes those born between the early 1980 to those born around 2000). The Boomers are resented by most belonging to the successor generations and it is believed that almost half of Millennials consider that the American dream is already dead and also that their parents killed it. There is also a belief that it’s because of the boomers that, there is an intense distrust in news media, Wall Street and Congress.
