What are Iowa Caucus-Goers Thinking?

March 29, 2007

For Iowans, there's a non stop parade of presidential candidates visiting the state. What do most Iowans want them to talk about? A new AARP poll released this week shows there are two areas caucus-goers want answers to that many candidates aren't addressing -- soaring healthcare costs and financial well-being in retirement. Iowa AARP Executive Director Bruce Koeppl says the "Divided We Fail" campaign will help make sure the positions of candidates are known.

"The candidates, I think, will respond and want to get their message out. So, we are going to provide them places. We're going to do town hall meetings across the state of Iowa."

"Divided We Fail" brings together various groups in the state who usually have different agendas but want solution on these issues.

"We're going to do events where we're going to have key constituencies together that again don't always agree on the final answer, but agree that something needs to be done."

Koeppl notes all of these groups feel the urgency to get candidates to talk about the issues and come up with solutions, then hold them accountable, and the caucuses are a perfect platform to do that.
