Recently, we had the opportunity to speak with a group of undecided senior clients to find out what they think about the presidential candidates and what they plan to do on Election Day. Read on to find out their thoughts on the presidential race. Also, if you have talked with seniors about this election, please comment below or send us your thoughts at [email protected].
I am a true independent. I served in the war (World War II) and voted for Kennedy who served as well. Then, I didn’t vote for LBJ even though he was from my home state. Since then I voted for Reagan and for Clinton. Usually, I don’t know until it hits me. I voted for McCain four years ago and felt like that was an easy choice but with the President and Romney—hmmm, that’s one I’ll be thinking on for a while.
Let me say right off the bat that I don’t know. Right now, I really don’t know. I voted for Obama last time and I know he’s done some good things in office, but I’m not sure he’s completely delivered on all of the big promises he made and that disappoints me. At the same time, I look over to the other side and I have to wonder what Romney could do that would make my life better as opposed to what Obama has or hasn’t done these past four years.
This is pretty interesting, but I voted for his dad (Romney’s) way back in the 60s. Things were pretty interesting to say the least at that time. Some days it seemed like the world was out of whack with Vietnam and the hippies. One of my sons left town to find himself in California. I used to kid him: “You found yourself yet?” Anyway, I’m off subject. Yeah, so I voted for the senior Romney and feel some loyalty about that even though I’ve mostly voted with the union when I was working. For the moment, I’m on the fence. I like what Obama did in the bailout and want to know better what Romney would do in a situation like that.
