    He lost that age group in both elections because those people are more frightened by the diversity and culture of the 21st century America, which Obama is the personification of.
    It just needs to stop.  This is how opponents of progress win - they divide us by generation, by class, by race or language.  I've seen this too often here - oh, seniors vote Republican, screw 'em, they're bigots, 'those people' deserve what they get - and it makes me sick.

      you're looking for something that isn't in what I wrote. Whatever issue you have it isn't with me.

    •  Agree, the day Dems turn their backs on seniors (5+ / 0-)

      is the day the party signs its death warrant.

      They tried turning their backs on women voters in the last decade and lost a lot of races as a result.  They're just now regaining ground with that important voting bloc.

      It's odd, though that they've spent so much time, effort and resources trying to win over male, GOP-lite "swing voters", without much success.

      You can't run a majority party and win races by relying on young voters, immigrants and those elusive "centrist" swing voters.

      Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.
