    Take a look at the age charts for battleground states.  These states undeniably had the most exposure to the issues and what the candidates stood for.  There is a big uptake in Obama voters in this age group.  In most of the swing states it looks like his worst age group was actually 40-49, NOT the elderly, and an especially a big bump in the 50-64 age group, often a majority.  People who are of an age to start thinking about retirement and noticing that the Republicans think it's cool to couponize Medicare for them and maybe even privatize Social Security.  This is a huge advantage among a group of boomers who WILL be around awhile, let us keep them blue!  Please, please, keep telling everyone exactly what they wanted to do them using the magic words "55 or older".
