Preventing Social Security benefit cuts is a top priority for Americans in 2020 election, survey finds

  August 19, 2020 | By Lorie Konish, CNBC

When Americans go to the polls this November, preventing Social Security benefit cuts will be one of the top issues on their minds.

That’s according to a  poll conducted by Data for Progress, a progressive think tank, and released with Social Security Works, an advocacy organization.

The results show that protecting Social Security ranked among the top answers, with 54% of respondents, when they were asked to pick their top three priorities for the 2020 election.

Other top issues also affect Americans’ wallets. That included universal health care, with 29%; raising the minimum wage, 26%; and reducing the wealth gap, 25%.

Those who were more likely to rank preventing Social Security cuts as a top concern include women, with 67%, compared to just 39% of men.

Those ages 45 and up were also more likely to give Social Security a high priority, with 68%, versus 23% of those under 45.
