Three Prominent Senior Advocacy Groups Endorse Biden


June 12 :
Reports from Washington, DC - In an effort to shore up support among seniors and counteract dwindling support among Black and Latino voters, three organisations speaking for the elderly backed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for reelection on June 12.

Social Security Works PAC, the bipartisan National United Committee to Protect Pensions, and the National Committee to Preserve Social Security & Medicare (NCPSSM), which broke with a 38-year trend of not endorsing candidates in 2020 to support Joe Biden, all announced their support for Biden in 2024.

The 4.4 million-member Alliance for Retired Americans endorsed Biden in January, and these hitherto unreported endorsements come after that. According to the committee, Biden made an effort to safeguard the earned benefits of seniors.

Due to their large voting populations—nearly 10 million in states like Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia, Arizona, and Nevada—and greater voter turnout rates than any other demographic, older Americans may prove to be a decisive factor in the upcoming election.

A positive development for the Democrat, whose favour rating hit a two-year low in May, could be the increasing support of the elderly for Joe Biden, the oldest president in office at 81 years old. Typically, seniors vote overwhelmingly for Republicans. Nearly 56 million people, or little less than 17% of the total U.S. population, were 65 and over as of the 2020 census. An April NBC News survey found that while Trump had a 7-point lead among young voters in 2016, Biden was able to close the deficit to 5 points in 2020 and is presently in a slim lead.
