Poll: NH Voters Want Candidates to Play Doctor

March 22, 2007


Rising medical bills, health insurance affordability, quality of health care - that's what New Hampshire voters want to hear about from presidential candidates trekking through the state, according to a new poll from Americans for Health Care. And John Thyng with New Hampshire for Health Care says a majority of voters polled are still waiting for candidates to start the discussion.

"People are not hearing enough from the candidates on the issue. They really want to know what the candidates' thoughts are on solving the health care crisis."

Eighty-two percent of primary voters agree that everyone has a right to quality, affordable health care coverage. Thyng believes rising health care costs and disappearing employer-sponsored plans are why health care reform has become a top voter topic.

People in New Hampshire are really expecting all of the candidates to come forward with concrete proposals on how to make sure that every New Hampshire resident, every American, has access to quality, affordable health care.
