Tonight’s primary showed us more of what we have already seen. And what’s that? 50 plus voters turning out to vote and economic issues topping voters’ concerns. According to the exit polls, North Carolina saw 55 percent of the electorate over 50 and in Indiana, 49 percent were 50+. The economy dominated as the top issue, with 61 percent in North Carolina and 67 percent in Indiana naming it as a top concern.

Hmmm… haven’t we heard this before? Seems that across the nation there are two things that are pretty consistent – half the electorate is over 50 and the top issue is clearly the economy. Let’s hope the candidates are paying attention.
