Are older Trump voters sticking with him?

Their combined ages total 151 but for presidential candidates, Donald Trump, 74, and Joe Biden, 77, retirement is far from their minds as they fight it out to become the top dog in American politics. The support of over-65s was integral to President Donald Trump’s Republican win over Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 US elections. They are reliable voters, rain or shine, and they swung behind him by nine percentage points more than Mrs Clinton. But four years later and in midst of the heavy debate over Mr Trump’s leadership in this coronavirus pandemic, will those who backed him then still stand by their man?

Retired lawyer Elizabeth Hall, 65, of Mount Kisco, New York regrets voting for Mr Trump in 2016, calling her decision “the biggest mistake of my life”.
