Marietta, GA (PRWEB) May 22, 2008
Torrid Technologies along with LiveLongLiveRich.com conducted the poll. Torrid-Tech, a software company in Atlanta that specializes in retirement planning tools, and Craig Rappaport, author of Live Long Live Rich-Creating Your Retirement Paycheck, conducted the poll to take the temperature of the retirement planning community.
The poll suggesting an overwhelming majority of retirement investment professionals and those involved in the retirement process choose John McCain as the presidential candidate that will best represent retirees by capturing 63.3 % of the vote compared with Obama with 22.5% with Clinton viewed as least likely to best represent retirees with 14.2% of respondents
"We were surprised to see such an overwhelming majority vote for John McCain. We really had no idea what to expect so to see one candidate receive such overwhelming support was quite a surprise" said Tim Turner the creator of Torrid Technologies's Retirement Savings Planner Software.
The poll received 591 responses and has a 95% accuracy rate plus or minus 4 percent.
"Retirement Income and financial security are major issues facing not only those currently in retirement but those planning their retirement as well. The candidate that best articulates a policy appealing to this group will capture a huge demographic group of voters. For the moment, it is John McCain" said author Craig Rappaport.
"With medical expenses and the cost of fuel eating away at retirees budgets this group is getting squeezed and will respond to the candidate that speaks to the wallet when it comes to getting these costs under control."
23 percent of the respondents were currently retired while 77 percent were not. Torrid Technologies plans to conduct another poll after the democratic presidential nominee is chosen to see which candidate is viewed as most likely to best represent the interests of retirees.
