    Looking at the national exit poll

    While this poll does not address the effectiveness of getting 9 million Democrats NOT to vote for Obama by not showing up at the polls, the comments note that 5 million more young people voted for Obama. In other words gullibility was a major factor in the election as this age group with zero life experience are frequently misled with promises and lack the cynicism to examine assertions. Where as Seniors voted overwhelmingly for Romney due to their cynicism. Only a young person would be fooled by Obama’s false assertion that pediatricians get more money for referring a child for a tonsillectomy, a senior knows better.

    One point of disagreement with the conclusion of the piece is the comment on seniors (65+) dying to reduce their numbers. Current demographics insures that the senior vote will be INCREASING not decreasing due to the timing of the baby boomers. Yes, seniors will die, however there are plenty in our age group (45 to 64) to replace those who pass on to a better existence. So come 2016, IF seniors as a group are truly displeased with Obama’s performance, Democrats are going to take a severe drubbing no matter how slick their promises are to the young (18 to 29) since their numbers are DECREASING and not increasing due to the dropping birth rates.

    Obama also lost among the 45 to 64 vote as well. This suggests that future GOP targeting of the 30 to 44 voter where Obama did reasonable well but the GOP did respectful is where their efforts should be concentrated. This age group is where cynicism is developing through realizing of repeated broken promises by Democrats. Focus on the broken promises, the young as a group will always be easily fooled but the maturing adults of 30+ are open to reality over utopic promises.

    What is interesting to note also is that Romney’s religion had little to do to suppress the GOP vote among Evangelicals or Jews.
