Medi-scared?

Once upon a time, voters who were 60 and older preferred Romney by 20 percentage points. Now he has a margin of less than 4 points, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll. The change may in part be attributed to fears over how the Republican would handle Medicare, which most seniors depend on.
