Crone Speaks discusses older voters predilection toward Hillary Clinton as opposed to Barack Obama:
I don’t think Barack’s lack of a strong showing among older voters has to do with these voters “loyalty” to Clinton. While this may be anecdotal, from what I’m hearing, and note this is mostly from women my age and older, is that for every person that loves Barack, three more cannot stand his arrogance and simply do not trust him, and at the same time don’t want to see the Clinton’s back in office. What it does come down to, is that this portion of the aging population is looking at voting for the lesser of two evils. They are already familiar with the Clinton’s. Being familiar is not the same as being loyal.
The point of all this is that it is Barack’s message and how that message is delivered that is his problem with the aging population. To say that these people are simply Clinton loyalists ignores the problem.
