Americans of all political leanings are showing signs of increased anxiety about having enough money to make ends meet during retirement, a recent survey commissioned by the Americans for Secure Retirement found.

"What we're seeing is significant-and increasing-concern from Americans of all political stripes about falling short financially during retirement," said Bill McInturff, founder and partner of Public Opinion Strategies, one of the organizations that conducted the ASR survey. "Not only are Americans concerned about their own financial health, but they also express widespread concern over how the continued contentious debate in Washington could further undermine what they are planning for in retirement. Even those who feel we must make dramatic cuts to deal with the debt think Congress needs to identify concrete ways to help Americans deal with further retirement instability."
