My mother has a friend who was a big Obama fan. A senior with some money in the bank who was sure the sun rose and set on his highness, if not him being personally responsible for the occurrence himself.
She goes and visits once a year or so. The last trip, all the adoration was gone. She will not vote for Romney, but she despises what Obama’s policies did to her bank account/retirement. She’s staying home.
So don’t let anyone tell you seniors are a lock for Obama.

Good. I wish everyone who voted for Obama would lose everything they have. Obama ruined her bank account but she won’t vote for Romney. She is probably one of those old: “I was born a Democrat and I’ll die a Democrat” people. Being old is one thing but why do people have to be so effin’ stupid.
This seems to be a persistent myth around here. I don't know where it came from. Seniors were never for Obama, and were the only age demographic that actually went for McCain 2008. They are no happier with obama now.
