Six and a half months before election day, President Obama holds a commanding lead over Mitt Romney among voters 18 to 34. The 64 to 32 percent margin is just two points off the lead that candidate Obama enjoyed over John McCain four years ago.
The President is also comfortably ahead in the polls with women and with Hispanic voters; but there is one important area where he trails Romney. Surprisingly--at least to me--President Obama is behind in the polls with older voters.
I wonder if seniors know what they are voting for in casting ballots for the presumptive Republican nominee. I wonder if they are aware of where the candidates stand on medicare and social security.
If our older voters do take time to check out the differences between the candidates on the issues most important to them, the President will surely have their votes come November.
