Voters Want to Know Where Candidates Stand


In a recent AARP survey, more than 9 in 10 New Hampshire voters 18 and older said it is important for presidential candidates to lay out their plans to make Social Security financially sound for future generations. The 9-in-10 proportion held across party lines and age groups.

“New Hampshire voters are sending a clear message to presidential candidates that having a plan to keep Social Security strong is a test of their leadership,” said Todd Fahey, AARP state director.

Without presidential leadership and congressional action, Social Security benefits could be reduced by 25 percent in 2034.
