I'm so glad that you brought that up....that's another reason from my linked article that I didn't include, but it's another reason she'll win......Oh, and she wasn't almost 70 years old then, either.
15. Calling Hillary ‘Old’ Insults the Old Republican Base
Hillary was born in 1947, making her 66 years young. If elected president, she will turn 70 during her first year in office. But as we all know, 70 is the new 55, so this is not a problem. But the next time you hear a Republican say that Hillary is too old to run (as I do all the time) please have these facts handy:
In the 2012 election, voters over the age of 65 composed 16 percent of the electorate and voted for Romney over Obama by 56 percent to 44 percent—making this age group Romney’s most loyal voting block. Next most faithful were the 45- to 64-year-olds, who constituted 38 percent of the voters and supported Romney 51 percent to Obama’s 47 percent.
So how do these stats help Hillary?
The answer is today’s “old people” do not think of themselves as old but rather smarter, more disciplined, better educated, and more competent than the generations that followed. Romney won older voters because he appeared more competent and accomplished than Obama. Now it is Hillary who will wear the competent and accomplished label more often than black pantsuits.
In addition to the competence factor, older voters (especially aging baby-boom women), relate well to someone like Hillary identifying with her life journey and numerous family struggles. Therefore, old people will carefully listen to her message and give her the benefit of the doubt—since the concept of “it is her time and she deserves it” will have been drilled into old people’s brains by the mainstream media.
Joke on you again and you're proven wrong AGAIN fool....remember, people like myself who are inour 30s-40s now will be the ones voting for her in a couple of years and age for us is not the deterrent as it is for you right wingers.
Look at the old geezers you all keep putting back into office and try to make a comparison to the Hillster.
Your side is old, saggy and tired and smells of ratted sewage.....
