The OE says that the sentence is in present form and hence we need to use will rather than would .But i choose option C because the survey has happened in the past. The action -people thinking about something about the future with respect to the past - requires 'would' and not 'will'.Experts please reply .

The survey has happened in the past but 'thinking' is happening in present. Basically, survey in the past is irrelevant but rather the result of the survey (According to a 2009 Prudential survey...) is forcing people to think in 'Present' that somthing will happen in 'Future'.

Make sense?
