Five-State Prescription Drug Survey

In a follow-up to AARP’s March 2019 survey of likely voters’ experiences with prescription medication and their views on proposals for reducing prescription drug costs, in July, AARP fielded five short state-level surveys among 600 likely voters ages 18 and older in Arizona, Colorado, Kentucky, Maine, and North Carolina.  In each survey, likely voters were asked their views on prescription medications and whether these views could affect their preferences for political candidates.

This survey was conducted by Fabrizio Ward, LLC, on behalf of AARP. The sample of 600 registered and likely voters per state was surveyed by telephone July 29-31, 2019. The survey was conducted in English.
