Long-term care issues and funding will be the factors to sway boomer voter opinion on Election Day. A Genworth Financial national poll finds 41 percent of respondents said the candidates’ positions on long term care issues and funding are “very important.”

Other poll results include:

  • More women than men (88 percent versus 79 percent) said they considered the issue of long-term care at least somewhat important in determining how they will vote.
  • Voters with lower household incomes found long term care policy and funding issues more important in their election decisions than those with higher incomes, with 93 percent of those earning $35,000 to $50,000 per year claiming an impact on their vote compared to 78 percent of those earning $75,000 or more per year.
