Old School: Seniors Likely To Give Dems Bad Midterm Grade


With voters worried about the economy and deficits, and increasingly skeptical of President Obama, polls show Ameri cans favoring Republicans over Democrats on most generic ballot questions. Even worse, seniors are the most disgruntled — and they vote.

A July Quinnipiac survey found that respondents favored Republicans over Democrats for Congress by 43%-38%. The gap was widest among those over age 55, 45%-37%.

Respondents favored the GOP by 48%-44% in a recent Gallup poll. Again the gap was largest among seniors, with those 65 and older preferring the GOP 52%-40%.
