Sadly, this comment is often true. Women (or anyone) over 55 grew up in an era when women were SAHM's, and often deferred to their husbands on such matters. They may also be damaged by their often inferior education. I don't know about the 55+ women you know, but the 55+ women I know (family, friends of the family, ex-bosses) all worked, many have advanced degrees - including one who is a nuclear engineer. That doesn't change that they vote on issues that directly effect them right now. Some I've even had discussions with and said "well I changed my vote when Paul Ryan was picked as the VP candidate because he wants to end traditional Medicare for my age group and younger" - and some say "isn't that awful" - but they're still voting for that candidate (and not all have always voted Republican, so I don't define them as "conservatives").
