  Scoop: Generation Jones is driving NZ Voter Volatility
The new analysis shows that Generation Jones is exhibiting strikingly similar voting patterns to those that were so influential in the Nov’04 U.S. and May’05 U.K. elections, where Generation Jones was widely reported by pollsters and media to be the decisive vote in both elections.
At this point in the campaign, the overall closeness of the race is largely because of Generation Jones.
Generation Jones is split down the middle, and it is likely that whichever party is able to pull this large, volatile generation to its side will win the election.

  Generation Jones - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Generation Jones, according to American social scientist Jonathan Pontell (born 1958), consists of those Americans born between the years 1954 and 1965 (inclusive).
The word "Jones" is apparently used in this context because in the 1970s it was a popular slang term used to refer to a "yearning" or "desire" (in this case, a yearning or desire to be recognized as an integral demographic entity).
The vast majority of Jonesers had the Silent Generation as parents, whereas the Baby Boomers were predominantly the offspring of the "World War II" or G.I. Generation, and the Baby Boomers themselves are the primary parents of Generation Xers.

 Rickie Lee Jones: live in concert   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Jones grabbed the throne of Bohemia in 1979 with her Grammy-winning self-titled debut album with songs that spun out like stories improvised over one too many gimlets.
Jones casually surveyed the ground she has traveled in her career, from standards to experimental rock to the shaggy dog tales that charmed her fans early on.
Half the 16 songs she sang were covers, and Jones, switching from guitar to piano or just singing (sometimes accompanied by upright bassist Paul Nowinski), clearly relished the opportunity to get under the skin of time-tested classics in relaxed circumstances.

Up to now, Generation Jones has been a concept in the head of a ''popular culture expert,'' a lawyer with an undergraduate degree in sociology, a Californian when he's not living in Prague, somebody with an engaging spiel and a long blond ponytail.
It could have been Generation Smith or Generation Doe, except Jones is a slang term from the years of the youth of those born in that time frame.
Pontell admits that those he calls the Jones Generation are not all alike, differing according to ethnicity, geographic origins, class background and their own parents' places on the economic scale.

 Meet Generation Jones - ManagingVolunteers.com
Generation Jones is perfectly suited to family volunteering, according to popular culture expert and author Jonathan Pontell.
Pontell first put forth his concept of Generation Jones in 1990, believing that the segment of the population born between 1954 and 1965 were not "Baby Boomers," but part of a separate generation.
Pontell believes that this generation that put their idealism on hold has achieved financial security and is rediscovering their idealism as they enter middle age.

 Lost Generation - a new subset of baby boomers is being called generation jones - Brief Article Entrepreneur - Find ...
Generation Jones, if one is to accept this premise, represents males and females born between 1954 and 1965, an era that, we all thought, belonged to the last of the baby boomers and the first of the Gen Xers.
The Jones concept was created by sociologist Jonathan Pontell, who will be 42 in June and always felt he was only trapped inside a boomer's body.
Although she believes Joneses are a subset of boomers, Ann A. Fishman, president of Generational Targeted Marketing Corp. in New Orleans, admits that Pontell has done his homework and agrees that entrepreneurs should be refining their messages depending on the age group.

 Overshadowed generation prepares to steer political agenda, author claims - March 4, 2000
He says the members of the generation were too young to participate in the social and political whirlwind that was the late 1960s, though most of them were old enough to understand what was going on, and wanted in on some of the action.
Pontell argues that now that many in the generation have reached ages where they may not have to worry about income, security and life's other basic necessities, they're discovering they may have the luxury of political and social activism.
A generation that never had to make and then break such promises probably won't be burdened with so harsh a label.

Generation Jones makes up about a fifth of the population and its attitudes are very different from those of the rest of the population, says the media analyst group Carat.

Generation Jones has rejected the optimism and trust in governments of those born immediately after the war but has yet to endorse the cynicism and selfishness of Generation X - the MTV, Margaret Thatcher and computer game generation now in its 20s and 30s.

An eighth-generation Texan, Jones was the only child of Clyde Jones, a cowboy-turned-oil-field worker, and his wife, Lucille Marie.
His parents were married and divorced twice; as he later revealed in interviews, Jones had a difficult adolescence, enduring a good deal of physical abuse at the hands of his father.
If Jones’ manic performance as a villainous ex-CIA operative in the 1992 thriller Under Siege—starring Steven Seagal and directed by Andrew Davis—introduced his talents to a far wider audience than he had previously known, Davis’ action-thriller The Fugitive (1993) catapulted Jones onto the A-list of Hollywood stars.

 Forum: Who elected Bush? 'Generation Jones'
For the uninitiated, Generation Jones is the large, heretofore lost, generation between the baby boomers and Generation X. Born in the years 1954 to 1965, Jonesers are not a small cusp generation that slipped through the cracks, but rather the largest generation in American history, constituting 26 percent of all U.S. adults today.
This original flawed definition of the baby-boom generation has become widely discredited among generations experts, which is partly what's given rise to the emergence of Generation Jones, a cohort with significantly different attitudes and values than those held by its surrounding generations.
In fact, it is the female bloc of "Jones" voters that are largely identified as "security moms." They are also a major part of the "evangelical vote," and Jones voters are a significant percentage of the cross-over African-American, Asian and Hispanic voters who supported Bush.

 Silent Generation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The name Silent Generation was coined in the November 5, 1951 cover story of Time to refer to the generation coming of age at the time.
The phrase gained further currency after William Manchester's comment that the members of this generation were "withdrawn, cautious, unimaginative, indifferent, unadventurous and silent." The name was used by Strauss and Howe in their book Generations as their designation for that generation in the United States of America born from 1925 to 1942.
The impact of the generation was also great culturally, as the musicians and thinkers such as Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Bob Dylan who shaped the fashions of the boomers and were often associated with the pop culture of the 1960s and 1970s.
