What Issues Do Voters Care About Most?

A majority of US women age 50 and over -- one of the largest and most reliable voting blocs -- is still undecided in the final weeks leading to the midterms, casting uncertainty on the outcome of a critical election year.

While nearly all of older female voters said they will cast ballots in November, 51% hadn’t yet picked their congressional candidates, according to a poll from AARP released Tuesday. Four in ten will decide in the last few weeks before the election, and they divide evenly between Democrats and Republicans.
