(CNN) – Who you backed in Indiana seems to have been based, to some extent, on your birthday – a fact that’s working in Hillary Clinton’s favor.
Voters in most age groups were almost evenly split – except for the youngest and oldest voters.
Sixty-three percent of voters under age 24 backed Barack Obama. But twice as many seniors went to the polls – and 72 percent of them voted for Clinton.
In North Carolina, Obama won young voters 70 to 28 percent, and lost the senior vote to Clinton – but her advantage, though still significant, came by a slightly smaller margin: 57 to 39 percent. Limiting his losses among older voters was a big factor in his win.
