Issues in the 2000 Election: Health Care

Conducted in mid-July, this Washington Post/Henry J. Kaiser Foundation survey is the second in a series examining voters' attitudes on policy issues in relation to the ongoing presidential campaign. The survey is designed to compare the attitudes of issue-oriented voters and compare them to those of registered voters in general. Not surprisingly, those respondents identified as particularly oriented to health care and Medicare issues tended to believe that Gore and the Democrats would do a better job on these issues; but the general electorate did not demonstrate the traditional belief in a Democratic advantage on social issues, citing, for instance, Bush as more likely than Gore to stand up to special interests in the health care field. The results are posted in .pdf format.
