  •  Attitudes of older voters (0+ / 0-)

    One question I have is, having voted in high percentages against the Democrats in 2010, can older Americans turn around and vote against Republicans, or is the cognitive dissonance too great for many of them? From my standpoint, their votes were rather senseless in the first place, so it's hard for me to see how things will change. I have the idea that many older Americans don't like change, such as the idea of a black President or new health programs that largely didn't involve them but included cuts in Medicare spending that many of them weren't convinced wouldn't hurt them.

    Is all of this making sense, or does it sound like I'm totally talking through my hat? I can take criticism and correction, if you've got some.
