It’s not the Youth vote or the dreaded Millennial vote we have to worry about… It’s the 65 and Up crowd filled with tv watchers and fat retards!

DELRAY BEACH, Fla.— Ruth Mary Baudhuin watched Lawrence Welk as a young girl, listened to fellow Philadelphian Chubby Checker on the radio and eventually grew into her parents’ Republicanism, an Irish-Catholic conservatism that idealized the nuclear family.

But the 68-year-old retiree, like many older voters, no longer recognizes her party.

The soft-edged promise she recalls of previous nominees—Ronald Reagan’s sunny disposition, John McCain’s undisputed patriotism—have been replaced with what she views as insults and bombast.

So she’s backing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, ending her streak of supporting every Republican presidential nominee since Gerald Ford.

“The main thing is I really don’t like the person,” said Baudhuin, now a Florida voter, barely able to speak GOP nominee Donald Trump’s name and relying instead on pronouns. “His attitudes, all the negative things he puts out, I really don’t want a racist to be president,” she said.

Baudhuin’s change of heart isn’t an anomaly when it comes to America’s oldest—and most reliable—voters. Among voters 65 and older, the most recent round of major media polls show Mr. Trump running between 11 and 18 percentage points behind 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney at this same point four years ago.

  1. That’s all Rupert Murdoch’s Blog propaganda, here is the ACTUAL break down of the data from the ACTUAL poll conducted from June 1-July 14, 2016, among a national sample of 23347 registered voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 1 percent.

    Among white voters 45 and older, Trump leads Clinton handily. White respondents over 65 pick Trump over Clinton 50 percent to 34 percent, with similar margins for white voters age 45 to 64, 48 percent to 34 percent. Gen-X white voters (age 35 to 44) still opt for Trump, but the margins are tighter at 44 percent to 39 percent. Among white voters under 35, Clinton leads Trump by 2 percentage points, 40 percent to 38 percent
