Of all of the bad polling data that Republicans have seen over the past few weeks, this may be the most troubling. According to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll, Mitt Romney's support among voters over the age of 60 has collapsed...

Strange as it is Obama who is hurting senior benefits and the military retiree health care.

Yes voters over 60 see right through him.

I would hope they would act in their own self-interest. If Ryan had his way his budget cuts would badly impact seniors.

Seniors who used to be Republican are mortified by this Republican party, and are voting Obama, albeit reluctantly. They can't abide Romney, seeing the reality of the ignorant ideas he and Ryan stand for.

Thanks Carrie for the link to The National Memo article by Henry Decker. I have yet to meet any one over 60 who is going to vote for this man. Read and noted.

Nobody over 55 should even entertain the idea of voting for any RepubliCON, but Especially a certified 1%-er!
The trolls may spin their lies, but WE know who wants to Kill Senior & Disability safety nets, as well as Veteran's Benefits!

I love Joan Wile2's "comment" on the poll:

MITT AND ANN
AWAY THEY RAN
TO FETCH THE PRESIDENCY
MITT FELL ON HIS RUMP
WHEN HE WAS HEARD TO DUMP
ON HALF THE CITIZENRY

HE TRIED IN VAIN
HIS QUEST TO REGAIN
THE PUBLIC'S CONFIDENCE
BUT WOULDN'T GIVE FACTS
ABOUT HIS TAX
HIS DECLINE DID THUS COMMENCE

THE PUBLIC GREW SKEPTICAL
TO LEARN HE KEPT IT ALL
STASHED IN THE RICH CAYMAN ISLES
HOW COME POOR SLOBS PAID
A THIRD WHAT THEY MADE
WHILE MITT RETAINED ALL OF HIS PILES?

BUT THAT WASN'T ALL
THAT CAUSED MITT TO FALL
HE REALLY DID GIVE US A SCARE!
THOUGH HE CAN AFFORD
DOCTORS FIT FOR A LORD
HE WANTS US TO LOSE OUR HEALTH CARE

HE REALLY RAISED IRE
AMONG THOSE WHO RETIRE
'CAUSE HE'D TURN OUR SS INTO VOUCHERS
THIS FILTHY RICH GUY
SEEMED TO IMPLY
THAT AVERAGE RETIRED ARE OLD SLOUCHERS

HE WAS SURELY UNDONE
WHEN HE WENT TO LONDON
TO ATTEND THE OLYMPIC GAMES
HE RAISED THE BRIT ROOF
WITH HIS DIPLOMACY GOOF
BY CALLING THEIR READINESS LAME

AND WOMEN, THAT SET IT
HE JUST DOESN'T GET IT,
HE'D RETURN THEM TO THE DARK AGES
HE'D DENY THEM THEIR VOICE
DISALLOW THEM THEIR CHOICE
IF HE COULD, HE'D LOCK THEM IN CAGES

NO, MITT, WE DON'T LIKE YOU
JUST TAKE A HIKE, YOU
SIMPLY DON'T HAVE A CLUE
GO ON BACK TO YOUR USELESS OLD BAIN
OUTSOURCE ALL WORKERS IN YOUR DOMAIN
SOON WE'LL BE OUTSOURCING YOU!

I was going to put Joan's poem up, Pamylle you beat me to it!
Isn't it GREAT?!!!
"SOON WE'LL BE OUTSOURCING YOU! "
And some very clever rhymes, there.
"THE PUBLIC GREW SKEPTICAL
TO LEARN HE KEPT IT ALL"

[This is from a Comment on the Article.]
Thanks, Pamylle, for passing it on!
Started my day off right, with laughter!

How can anyone vote intelligently for someone who says "I'll give details later"?

I need to consider the facts when making a decision!

I'm not surprised. After Romney's 47% speech it's clear what he thinks about the elderly.

What a great poem I really enjoyed reading it. Vote Obama it is the right thing to do for all of us.

I am 60 but I am Canadian. I shudder to think what my mother's fate would be were she still in the US (she came here at age 16) --- she has Alheimer's (late stage) and is in full time nursing care. Her care costs 80% of her taxable income but all her medications are covered. She has few other costs except income tax. I shudder to think would happen to me and my medical costs since I am a diabetic.

Rmoney has the wrong station for the nation! He is an elitist, a pandering, foot in mouth elitist! Is it any wonder that ordinary citizens, especially those over 60 are running away from Rmoney?! And Lyin' Ryan --- I loved that he got booed big time by the AARP. The two weasels (no offence intended towards the furry little critters!) deserve each other!

I am surprised any senior would even consider voting Romney/Ryan. That's like shooting your hand off with a gun. Those 2 are out of touch and will tell you anything so you vote for them. If they are elected, it won't be good for America.
