Election Day was full of historic results for Barack Obama. But his performance among seniors provided one of the few lower points, as exit polls show that Obama lost to John McCain among seniors 45 to 53 percent. According to the exit polls, while Obama made gains with nearly all groups compared to John Kerry, this did not happen with seniors. They, along with gay and lesbian voters, were the big underperformers for Obama. Among seniors overall, there was no real change from 2004 to 2008. And among white seniors, Obama lost significant ground, even while he made gains among the white electorate as a whole.

Over 61 percent of eligible voters turned out this year, the highest turnout level since 1968. Much has been made of Barack Obama's turnout machine, which drew out a new cadre of voters--”particularly new African American, Hispanic, and young voters”--and these voters cer-tainly contributed to Obama's win. Obama dominated McCain among these new voters, not only young and minority voters, but first-time voters of every age group and demographic heavily supported Obama.

Economic Concerns Driving Political Measures to New Depths
Monday, April 14 2008

After nearly a year of remarkably consistent numbers in key metrics of the country's political environment, we are seeing significant movement as rapidly deteriorating attitudes toward the economy drive ratings of the country's direction, consumer confidence, and President Bush's job approval marks to new lows. Approval of Congress has also fallen, but the anger is not directed at the "Democratic Congress" which has seen a decline in its negatives this year - in fact, the country's profound change dynamic has resulted in the massive Democratic advantage in the generic congressional ballot growing even larger in March.

Despite recent coverage of shifting attitudes toward the war in Iraq and the Democratic Congress, the latest public polls show the country's political environment remains fundamentally unchanged, with President Bush and Republicans in Congress still deeply unpopular and Democrats maintaining a significant electoral advantage at the congressional level one year before the next election. Broad disapproval of Congress as an institution reflects the massive change dynamic still driving the electorate and is not directed at the new Democratic leadership.
