Surprise: Hotcoldwetdry A Lower Ranking Concern For Floridians 50 And Over

Good news for Warmists: it’s not dead last

Environment, climate change a mid-pack concern for older voters, per AARP poll

The environment and climate change came in at No. 6 among older voters’ top priorities for Governor.

The effects of climate change are such that some politicians will support bills that deal with climate resiliency without addressing climate change directly in their rhetoric. Meanwhile, Florida’s very name is a nod to the unique natural life that calls this state home.

However, it can be challenging for environmental issues to break through in favorable years, and this is not one — pocketbook issues that typically dominate voter concerns have some extra oomph.

A new poll from AARP shows the environment and climate change in the middle to back of the pack on issues important to people aged 50 years and older.

A bipartisan polling firm team of Fabrizio Ward and Impact Research collaborated on the poll that involved more than 1,600 Floridians the week of Aug. 24-31.

The poll, which had a 4.4% margin of error, included 500 likely voters, with an emphasis on older likely voters that included 550 likely voters 50 and older, with 262 Hispanic and 314 Black voters.

There’s two relevant graphics

So, for senate just 5%, governor 7%. Of course, when you have both environment and climate, the numbers are higher. I bet if you separated them the environment alone would be at least 4-5 points higher. Interestingly, though, is, if you refer to the last slide of the poll, you see that 58% of respondents are suburban, 26% urban, and 54% are women, so, you’d expect the number to be higher. However, the party ID is 44% Republican, 36% Democrat, 20% independent, which can also skew the poll. Regardless, it’s just more proof that after 30+ years of spreading awareness ‘climate change’ is just not that important of a real world issue. Even among Dems it only made it to 10% for the state concerns.

    The oldies have less to worry about in the future because they have less future to worry about.
    Do you have any polling data on the hot chick’s 18-35 ? Isn’t anyone interested in that cohort?

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Strolling through the entire poll of 50+ Floridians is worthwhile.

    There’s a whole bunch of support for Big Gubmint Socialism there. 80% of old Repubs fervently support Social Security and Medicare, which “steals” at least one half of our tax dollars!!

    And since Brandon is the worst president ever and is destroying America shouldn’t GOPhers be dominating the polls? Earlier this summer they were predicting a red wave of taking the House, the Senate, indicting Hunter and hanging Mike Pence. What happened?

      Well, let’s see. If the polls are conducted by the same partisan hacks that doe the supposed “neutral” news media how do you think the polls will read the closer the election gets? The democommies control all information from the media to social to advertising to TV and even sports. How would you think anyone can beat that type of constant brainwashing commie style?

      There’s still gonna be a red wave it’s just all these commie sources are trying to talk America out of it. If you change the definition of enough things from inflation to vaccine at some point everyone is so confused they are easy to manipulate. That’s exactly what you guys want and what your operatives in all media are doing. Hell, you evil bastards are even grooming children in school!

      You guys make the best brainwashers in history like Goebbels, Stain, Pol Pot, Mao etc. seem like rookies. Of course you have a lot more tech to use than they did.

      But we love ot when you get cocky because you get careless. This time we will not allow your election theft to pass unchallenged.

        Lucas G. Magat,

        You live in a fantasy world, don’t you? It’s a swirl of conspiracies, persecution, complaints, magical thinking, dreams, lies…

        grooming, CRT, vaccines, masks, inflation, persecution, whining… LOL

        Why didn’t youse tough guys challenge the last election? All it would take is evidence. Rudy, Lin, Sidney, Jenna et al challenged in the courts at least five dozen times, and even tRump-appointed judges laughed them out of court. The battleground states are run by nuGOPhers – how did they let it happen that tRump the Great lost? Note that the nuGOPhers do not intend to ever let a Dem win again. They are putting extremist wingers into positions to oversee the counts.

      We have explained government programs to you, why can’t you understand?

      As to elections, we will see, but I think we are headed to war. That will get it right.

      • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

        There has to be a war. They would never leave us alone if we separated and lived side by side. Especially when they do to their side what they’ve done to their cities. Without us middle class workers, small businessmen and professionals to pay their taxes they are worthless. Plus, we are their customers. And they need our food, energy and expertise more than we need their gadgets.

        Besides, the Dowd’s of America don’t want us to live let alone choose how we live. They burn with hate and even they can’t or won’t explain why. I guess it’s because we respect life and just want to be left alone. They hate that.


        • david7134 says:

          To me, Jeff or Dowd represents the typical liberal. Liberals are incapable of leaving people alone, it is not in their system. All the idiot rules, regulations and laws have little basis in improving our lives, mostly they get off on control and manipulation of others. Looking at the history of the civi war, you see that slavery was not part of it and the leaders of the South point out that their reason for leaving was simply to get away from the Dowds up north.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            To me, Porter or david represents the typical tRumpist. tRumpists are incapable of leaving people alone, it is not in their DNA. The state should be merged with the state religion, christianity.

            Only a confederate revanchist like Porter or david would argue that slavery was not at least part of the civil war. If Porter or david had their way they would re-institute slavery. The problem the confederate traitors had with the liberals up north was that liberals opposed slavery. If those up north had just let the confederates sip their sweet tea while the darkies picked cotton all would be just swell.

            It is beyond belief that daily you lay out your ignorance on a daily basis.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Porter or david,

            It is beyond hourly belief that hourly you lay out your hourly ignorance on an hourly basis.

        • Professor hale says:

          they would never leave us alone..”

          Of course not. Communism only works when there are productive people to steal from. You will notice that no communist ever gave away his own stuff and communist party leaders always lived like royalty.

    You poor, poor dear. Do your wealthy siblings and parents also want a war? Do they fancy secession? Florida could become its own nation, couldn’t it? Texas too. With the Republics of Texas and Florida, the United States 48 would be forever Dem. Perhaps the MAGAts left behind would immigrate to Texas and Florida. All those filthy diseased migrants from WV and western KY crossing your border! Eww.

    Tell me about respecting life, please. What does that mean in practice? Many MAGAts want to ban all abortions including pregnancies resulting from rape or incest. Some want no exceptions. When does a fertilized ovum become a “person” in your opinion?

    And you want to be left alone? You should leave others alone.

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      We have repeatedly told you about “respecting life” and as usual you choose to deny the science. You think murdering a baby because it was conceived through rape or incest is respecting life? Are you serious? That’s just demented. Killing an innocent baby is respecting life? WOW, how far you’ve fallen.

      The moment the cells have their own DNA they are the start of a human being. Or do you deny that science too?

      Some pro lifers do want no exceptions just as some pro abortionists want abortion even at birth. You always point out the extremes as if they are the norm. Neither is the norm. That’s why there can never be a compromise over anything with you absolutists. It’s all got to be your way.

      “And you want to be left alone? You should leave others alone.”

      What’s that stupid comment supposed to mean? Am I forcing people to wear masks, get fake vaccines, close their business, fire employees, drive certain cars, change the heating of their homes, finance abortions, finance gay crap in schools, pay for BLM and such to steal our taxes and murder people? I think leaving others alone is YOUR problem commie, not mine.

    Ruh roh… A rumpled DonJon was caught sneaking out of tRump Tower with 20 something Margo Martin, a press aide. Another 20-something aide was seen dumping a stack of loose papers into his limo on their way out. WTF is wrong with that man?

    Is it possible that Hunter Biden’s laptop has classified materials on it??
