Context

Using the General Election 2017 as an example, YouGov believe that Young people voted for Labour whereas the older generation voted for The Conservative party.

YouGov polls for voting in GE2017 by age demographic

It seems to me that from the most recent election this could be true, but I'm looking for history to tell a story and I can't seem to find any hard evidence/studies of this demographic.

Note: These assumptions are based solely on the most recent election in the UK.


Question

Does the UK electorate become more likely to vote conservative with age?


Notes:

  • The answer should include evidence over a prolonged period of time (two elections cycles or more if possible) - or studies evaluating that fact.
  • My definition of Conservative would align into Conservatism or Toryism
