Things are Tight in Florida

Blogs in Florida [1] are talking about [2]a new survey t [3]hat shows AARP members in Florida are far from settled in their candidate preferences, with over half of potential Democratic and Republican voters saying they are likely or very likely to change their minds between now and Election Day based on what the candidates are saying about the issues.
The hot stuff? Health care and financial security. In particular, financial security issues remain a concern for AARP members. More than one in four members cited the economy and jobs as the most-important issue facing the country. Just as interesting is financial security has replaced Iraq as the top issue among AARP members, with the war falling as the top priority by 30 points among potential Democratic voters and 15 points among potential Republican voters since the summer.
