CNNís election night exit polls showed that Clinton won voters whose top issue was Medicare and Social Security.

Bob Dole slightly lost the elderly vote in 1996.

Voters ages 65 and older voted 50% for President Clinton and 44% for Bob Dole.

Talk about a loyal generation.

Clintonís success with senior citizens in both his elections was a big part of why his maps were so unique.

Clinton won them in 1996 and Gore won them in 2000. It was 2004 that the GOP started locking down the elderly vote, and they did so due in large part by generational change. The GI generation was for the most part gone by 2004 and the Silent Gens and Boomers (the oldest of them would turn 60 in the later half of the decade) that replaced them were more Republican.
