Physicians Rank Key Political Issues

Healthcare reform ranks below the economy, unemployment, and the national debt when it comes to key political issues.

In preparation for the upcoming election season, DoctorDirectory, a leading marketing solutions company serving healthcare professionals and pharmaceutical industry clients, surveyed members of its professional community to discover which key political issues were of importance to them.

Physicians were asked to rank the following key political issues; weighted averages of the 927 responders reveal that physicians place these issues in the following order:

1.    Economy
2.    Jobs / Unemployment
3.    National debt / Deficit
4.    Healthcare reform
5.    Medicare reimbursements
6.    International policy and conflicts
7.    Immigration reform

Physicians were also asked which candidate they feel has the best interest of healthcare practitioners in mind. 27% said Obama, 26% chose Romney, 23% chose none of the candidates, 18% said Ron Paul, and 6% did not respond.

When asked to choose a President, however, 41% chose Romney, 35% chose Obama, 15% were undecided, 5% preferred not to respond, and 4% chose neither candidate.
