Poll: Seniors Prefer Ryan's Budget to Obama's

A quick but important follow-up to my previous post on this subject.  For all the revived Mediscare talk, Paul Ryan's budget has more support from senior citizens that Barack Obama's does:


A new Gallup/USA Today poll contains a counterintuitive finding: the age group most receptive to House Budget Chair Paul Ryan's plan to deal with the budget - seniors. The poll finds 48 percent of seniors (those 65 and over) support Ryan's plan over President Obama's plan, while 42 percent back the president. That's the highest total among the age groups tested - a 47 percent plurality between the ages of 50 and 64 backed Ryan, and a 45 percent plurality of those between 30-49 backed Ryan. But young voters overwhelmingly sided with Obama by a 23-point margin, 53 to 30 percent.

In fact, Ryan's responsible and bipartisan plan garners plurality support from every age demographic except for young voters -- who, ironically, stand to suffer most from the impending entitlement-driven debt crash.  Democrats are pulling out all the stops to flip these numbers and scare the hell out of people.  In truth, voter's ought to be terrified by the Democrats' non-plan, which will crash the economy (far beyond the dreaful employment and growth numbers for which this president is repsonsible).  Republicans are well-served to emphasize this point at every opportunity, and to continue to introduce the electorate to "America's comeback team:"


As I observed earlier, Mitt Romney seems noticeably energized by his selection of Paul Ryan, as the freshly-minted ticket is touring swing states and drawing huge crowds.  For complete video of one such rally in North Carolina, click through to the Right Scoop.

UPDATE - Scoreboard.

UPDATE II - A new national poll from Politico shows Barack Obama and Mitt Romney statistically tied (48/47) among likely voters.  The poll has a D+7 sample, and puts Romney ahead with independents by ten points.
