The most recent election data reveals that the average Republican voter is older than the average Democrat, but the age gap is much less pronounced than what Wu suggested without any evidence to back up his claim. In Capitol Hill, the average age of 181 legislators in both houses of the Legislature is 57, taking into account the new members who were elected in the November midterm elections. While in Texas, 14% of the state's population is between 20 and 29 years old, according to the census, in the Legislature it is less than 1%. So, is Wu's comparison accurate? Is the average Republican voter in Texas really 20 years older than the average Democratic voter?.
