It really is strange how the largest, most influential voting block votes against itself. This is also the block with the most free time to read up on and learn about the candidates and them issues. Let's see....
"I worked all of my productive years and paid into medicare and social security"
"Medicare is a gov't program so it is bad"
"I need medicines and health care to be comfortable and live a reasonably healthy life"
"I'm against socialized medicine"
"I want that new expensive drug that is advertised but I don't want to pay for it"
"I'm voting against any candidate that supports my health and comfort"
"That Rick Perry. He has great hair! And he prays! Think how bad the Texas drought would be if they didn't have a christian governor"

There was an interesting segment last night on the PBS NewsHour about a new book coming out highlighting this important segment of the population/electorate in America today:
"The turnout amongst this generation was tremendous. There were as many of millennials voting in 2008 as there were senior citizens. And that was before so many more of them turned 18."
Looks like you can't blame them for Bush according to Pew.
