Why Older Voters In Arizona Are Moving Away From Trump
Former Vice President Joe Biden holds a slim lead over President Donald Trump in Arizona, among other key battleground states. And a report from AARP indicates Biden’s lead is being bolstered by a key, reliable voting bloc: Arizonans 50 and older.
In 2016, Trump had a six-point advantage among voters between the ages of 50 and 64, and a nine-point advantage among voters 65 and older, according to the Pew Research Center.
Now, the president has fallen behind, ceding valuable votes in the 65-plus category, in particular, to Biden. That just might be the advantage Biden — and Democratic Senate candidate Mark Kelly — need to turn Arizona blue.
