Uh Oh...this is not good news for the McCain/Palin team!
This is a group of people that turns out to vote more solidly than any other group of people voting. I personally think Palin is the biggest problem...older people can see a BS artist in Sarah...and weather or not she is, she "comes off that way".

Bloomberg.com: Politics

Barack Obama jumped to a 46-42 percent lead among those 65 and older in the latest Bloomberg/Los Angeles Times poll. That's an 18 percentage-point swing since mid-August, when the poll showed McCain with a 50-36 percent advantage.
People 65 and older are among Americans most concerned about financial upheaval, according to the poll, taken Sept 19-22.

Yeah, Obama has the momentum right now, that's pretty clear.
If McCain is losing ground in this demographic it's pretty bad news.

Must admit i was quite amazed that McCain was losing this group of Voters. Maybe they realise that they are the ones who will lose the most when McCain freezes payments.

Bloomberg is one of the least accurate and reliable sources for news on anything. Seniors will never support a socialistic Muslim.

McCain supporters don't believe in polls if the poll isn't in their favor. If it doesn't suit them, then it's just not real. Kinda like global warming- not real until the earth is parched and dead or it's inhabitants are drowning on the world's coasts. If they don't see it with their own eyes it's just made up (unless, of course it was from the Bible- then it's absolutely real)

Well, it is a good thing that a socialistic Muslim isn't running for president. Are you for real with this nonsense?

Talk about drinking Kool-Aid.

A couple of weeks ago my MIL (she's in her 70s) told me that the people at her senior center were overwhelmingly supporting Obama.

Love it how the Republicans jump up and down on the rare occasion that McCain was ahead in the polls and then say the polls mean nothing when he's behind, which is 98% of the time.
