AARP Polls Spotlight Importance of Voters 50 and Older in 2020 Elections

AARP on Tuesday shared the results of a series of battleground-state polls of likely voters in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Montana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

The polls, which also surveyed key U.S. Senate races, found:

– In Arizona, Democrat Mark Kelly (48%) leads incumbent Republican Sen. Martha McSally (45%).
– In Colorado, Democratic former Gov. John Hickenlooper (51%) leads incumbent Republican Sen. Cory Gardner (46%).
– In Georgia, Democrat Jon Ossoff (48%) leads incumbent Republican Sen. David Perdue (47%).
– In Georgia’s special election, Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler (24%) leads Republican Rep. Doug Collins (20%), Democrat Raphael Warnock (19%), Democrat Matt Lieberman (10%), Democrat Ed Tarver (7%) and 19% of voters are undecided.
– In Iowa, incumbent Republican Sen. Joni Ernst (50%) leads Democrat Theresa Greenfield (45%).
– In Maine, Democrat Sara Gideon (44%) and incumbent Republican Sen. Susan Collins (43%) within the margin of error and independent Lisa Savage with 6%.

“This election hinges on battleground states and these results show either candidate can win,” said Nancy LeaMond, AARP executive vice president and chief advocacy and engagement officer, said in a statement. “Most importantly, people are casting their ballots earlier than ever. The window is closing, so candidates need to address concerns of 50-plus voters now.”

In August, AARP launched “Protect Voters 50+,” a comprehensive voter engagement campaign to support and protect Americans 50 and older as they vote in the 2020 elections, the organization said, adding that the campaign will help Americans over 50 vote safely, whether at home or in person.
