Boomers Pessimistic About Retirement

Aug 10, 2012

A new survey shows a majority of voters over age 50 in Ohio and across the country have serious reservations about when or if they'll be able to retire. Because of that, they're saying the presidential candidates need to talk more about Social Security and Medicare. The poll was commissioned by AARP, and surveyed voters in Ohio and five other states. Pollster Guy Molyneaux says 50 percent of baby boomer voters in Ohio believe they will retire at some point, but 64 percent think they will have to delay retirement. Molyneaux says overall, boomers are pessimistic.
