President Barack Obama and his likely challenger in November Mitt Romney don't just appeal to different parties and ideologies. They appeal to different age groups.
A new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll shows a gaping generation gap. It says most seniors 65 and older support Mitt Romney. And young adults under 30 favor President Obama by nearly a two to one margin. USA Today says voting trends among those age groups could work in Romney's favor.
The paper says younger voters who turned out in droves for Obama in 2008 appear less engaged this year. And seniors, who were less engaged four years ago, seem more inspired by Romney.
