Among folks 50-64, Trump appears to be holding firm. However, among voters 65 and over, the President is doing poorly. Hillary Clinton lost that group by 9 points, but Biden is leading among them by 14-17 points (depending on whose numbers you believe), which means a swing of 23-26 points.

It is an open question as to exactly why this group, which historically leaned Democratic but has skewed Republican for the last several elections, is increasingly rejoining Team Blue. ...It could be that they like their presidents moderate. It could be that, having been born in 1955 or earlier, they did not much care for the idea of a woman or a Black man as president. The 65 and above cohort also includes a lot of Vietnam and World War II veterans, and maybe Trump's remarks on America's war dead are what's put many of them off him. Or perhaps it's some combination of all of these things.
