I notice you failed to provide other reasons. Their reasons are varied - you'd have to ask them what are their deciding factors they're basing their decision on. But I don't believe everyone who votes Republican at 55 didn't vote at all when they were 35 - so the fact that those older tend to sway higher towards Republican candidates - and that hasn't changed greatly in the last 40 years even with things like birth control and more women in the workforce and high education - says something changes how people vote - and IMO it's most likely their priorities.Sounds like someone making an excuse for the way she's gonna vote. Hardly, since I'm voting for Obama this year. But I think it's sad when people who clearly support one-party-line think calling true swing-voters things like "stupid" is going to help their party.It's not a cop-out. Voting for Romney because you've always voted "R" is the cop-out.It IS a cop-out because the true issue isn't about voters who vote a party-line all life-long. Those aren't the ones who determine the election. So it's a cop out to call swing voters "stupid" in years when a Republican is possibly going to win - but somehow those voters weren't stupid 4 years ago when they voted for the party you support.
