Delgado leads Faso among voters over 50 in AARP poll

Democratic challenger Antonio Delgado led Republican Rep. John Faso by 43 percent to 36 percent among voters older than 50 in a poll conducted for the AARP in New York’s 19th Congressional District and released this week.

Delgado’s seven-point lead was larger than the four-point margin of error for the poll, which questioned 610 registered voters from Sept. 6-16. Seven percent of surveyed voters over 50 supported another candidate – independent Diane Neal and Green Party candidate Steve Greenfield also are running – and 13 percent were undecided.

Huge majorities of the 50+ voters wanted Congress to preserve Medicare’s existing hospital coverage after 2029 and to strengthen Social Security. More than 80 percent opposed allowing health insurers to deny coverage or charge more for people with pre-existing medical conditions, or to charge older customer up to five times more in premiums than they charge younger ones.
