Can Sanders Sway Seniors?

Bernie Sanders is a senior citizen.

At 77, he's one of the oldest people running for President.

Sanders is lagging behind with seniors in the polls.

In poll after poll, he places a distant second behind former Vice President Joe Biden among voters 65 and older.

Senior citizens have more sway over who becomes president than any other.

In 2016, Sanders won more voters from young people than Hillary Clinton and President Donald Trump combined.

Clinton crushed him among older Americans at the ballot box, denying him the nomination.

Sanders love of democratic socialism and calls for a political revolution are likely a tougher sell to many older voters.
