Fifty-two percent of voters aged 50 and older in Florida approve of the job President Donald Trump is doing, and 41 percent prefer Republicans in the upcoming midterm elections, according to a survey conducted by Politico.

Nearly half of the electorate in 2016 was 50 or older, and Trump took 52 percent of the 50-plus vote, according to national exit polls.

The age group, according to Politico, will likely be "key to determining the balance of power in Washington this November."

The Politico survey also found:

  • Younger generations in Florida disapprove of the job Trump is doing and prefer Democrats to Republicans.
  • Women age 50 and over are less approving of the current healthcare policy than men the same age.
  • 24 percent of voters think healthcare insurance companies are responsible for rising healthcare costs in the U.S.
  • Rural voters are less confident in the availability of public services, including Medicare, Social Security, and Medicaid.
  • Lower-income voters are less confident they can afford to retire and also think their personal financial situation is worse.

Politico surveyed 1,199 registered voters in Florida from May 29-30 for its poll.
