    I've seen almost nothing about who American Seniors prefer between Trump and Clinton. Anyone have a credible link to current Seniors voting trend? That would seem to be a big factor in Florida.

    Old people heavily back Trump.

    Which is bad for the GOP in the long term, because their voters are kicking the bucket. And people tend to get more liberal as they age.

    Reminds me of the Yogi Berra line >> "Nobody goes to that restaurant anymore, it's too crowded."

    Actually more people become conservative as they age, that is why most old people are conservative. When you are young you don't have a lot of money for the state to take. As you work and become productive you see what the state is doing to your hard earned money. That turns most people conservative. The exceptions are the liberals who never really made much money working in welfare offices. They still need a handout.

    I just haven't seen much data on Seniors which is odd since they are such a significant voting block. I thought they might be favoring Trump if for no other reason than wanting to re-capture the "Great Years" of America.
