Poll Alert: Doctors Choose Romney over Obama


Considering his crowning achievement is an overhaul of America’s health care system, it is telling that America’s medical professionals don’t want to see Barack Obama re-elected. This doesn’t shock me; my mom is a nurse and thinks that Obamacare is misguided policy that will do more harm than good. A new survey has doctors choosing Romney, by a 19-point margin:

A new survey shows Mitt Romney with a commanding lead over President Barack Obama among doctors, with Obamacare helping to sway their votes.

If the election were held today, 55 percent of physicians reported they would vote for Romney while just 36 percent support Obama, according to a survey released by Jackson & Coker, a division of Jackson Healthcare, the third largest health care staffing company in the United States

Fifteen percent of respondents said they were switching their vote from Obama in 2008 to Romney in 2012. The top reasons cited for this change was the Affordable Care Act and the failure to address tort reform.

Unsurprisingly, Obamacare is the number one argument against the President with doctors. I can just imagine the class warfare response to this; of course doctors choose Mitt, they’re rich, but that’s just a slanted rebuttal to a horrible reality for Obama supporters. The medical profession knows that Obamacare will harm the quality of care in the United States, so they’re voting for Romney.
