How many AARP members are there?
As of February 19, 2010, there are 35.7 million members of the American Association of Retired Persons or AARP. This is according to a press release published by the AARP on the same date. A huge controversy broke out in August 2009 following AARP’â„¢s support for President Obama’â„¢s health reform measure, which led to the reported exodus of 60,000 of its members. An Associated Press report, however, quotes an AARP spokesman as saying that AARP gained 400,000 since July 2009.
