(May 10, 2018) Kaiser Health News press release:
Six Months ahead of the Midterm Elections, Democratic and Republican Voters’ Views about President Trump Outweigh their Views on Issues, Including Health Care
Voters’ Biggest Health Care Concern is Their Costs – Not the Affordable Care Act or Single Payer
Who are the “Health Care Voters”? Mostly Women, and Mostly Planning to Vote Democratic
As primary season for the 2018 midterm elections heats up, the latest Kaiser Family Foundation poll suggests the elections are shaping up more as a referendum on President Trump than on health care or any other issue.
When asked what will make the biggest difference in how they vote in the Congressional elections, larger shares of Democrats and Republicans cite candidates’ support for or opposition to President Trump (30% of Democrats, 32% of Republicans) and candidates’ character and experience (27% of Democrats, 22% of Republicans) than say national issues (21% of Democrats, 20% of Republicans).
