6. unfortunately it seems a generational thing

we probably have to wait until the gen x is the elder population because most people over 55 or so - not all but most still get their news from the majors - which are actually the minors - outlets

most people under that age get their news from the internet and research more - but also don't vote as much -

sure many people who are older have computers - but about half dont use them or know how - I work with people helping them with computers and you would be surprised the computer knowledge of most older people - again not all - some are very good at it - but most cannot copy and paste - dont know what a browser is - dont know how to type in a web address - cannot add an attachment to an email - wouldnt know hardly anything from anything and have a ton of pop ups all the time redirecting them because they have a virus or maybe a hundred of them - so when you see stats of people who have internet keep in mind about half of them don't really use it
