The old and young moved right, but the middle — driven perhaps by urban whites with more tolerance on social issues — moved left.

The groups are placed left or right of center depending on their level of support for their preferred party. For example, white voters in Alabama remain strongly Republican, though they moved a little left in this election.
In 2012, nearly all groups reduced their support for Obama, which is shown here with a shift to the right.
In 2008, many groups moved left, giving Barack Obama more support than they had given to John Kerry in 2004.
