Physicians: Romney 55, Obama 36.
15% of physicians have changed their vote from Obama to Romney because of Obamacare. Romney voters were more likely to have a stake in their own practice — meaning they understand the impact Obamacare will have on their practice. Obama voters were more likely to be employed by hospitals or health systems.
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.
