Up 7 In THIS Key State

(Patriot.Buzz) – Facing increasing unease within his own party, Joe Biden has received even worse news as former President Donald Trump is currently leading by 7 points among voters aged 50 and older in the key battleground of Wisconsin.

Amid Democratic concerns about Biden’s age and capability following a poorly received debate performance, the American Association of Retired Persons poll illustrates Trump’s advantage with a 44% to 38% lead in a ballot test.

Breaking it down by age, Trump has a 48% to 41% lead over Biden among all voters over 50.

He significantly leads by 15 points among those aged 50 to 64, while both candidates are equally supported at 45% among those 65 and older.

Men over 18 overwhelmingly prefer Trump by 22 points, whereas women generally favor Biden by 8 points.

The poll also highlighted that older voters prioritize economic issues over social or international concerns.

Specifically, 83% of voters over 50 consider a candidate’s stance on Social Security crucial to their voting decision, followed by Medicare at 72%, support for seniors staying in their homes at 63% and prescription drug costs at 62%.

AARP Wisconsin state director Martha Cranley emphasized the influence of older voters: “Wisconsin voters over age 50 are the biggest voting bloc and could tip the scale for any candidate in this election.”

She added, “If candidates want to win, they should pay attention to the issues that matter to voters over age 50, from protecting Social Security to supporting family caregivers.”

Experts are taking note of these findings. CNN political analyst and The Atlantic senior editor Ronald Brownstein described the poll as “brutal” in one of the most reliable Democratic states.

This poll also underscored that senior citizens are more likely to vote than younger people, with 85% of those aged 50 and over described as “extremely motivated” to vote, compared to just 64% of younger voters.

Following his debate performance, which sparked concerns about his age, some congressional Democrats have publicly urged Biden to withdraw from the race.

The poll surveyed 600 likely voters aged 50 and over from late June to early July and has a margin of error of 3.5%.

Other recent AARP statewide polls also show Trump leading in Arizona and Nevada among voters aged 50 and over.
