To better understand voters in swing states’ attitudes toward President Trump’s health care promises and proposed Medicare cuts, the Committee to Protect Medicare commissioned a survey of 2,993 registered voters in Arizona, Iowa, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The randomized survey was conducted from January 30th – February 2nd, 2020 for.
As outlined below, the poll finds deep skepticism that the President will achieve better health care for everyone and lower prescription drug prices in battleground states won by President Trump in 2016. A majority of the sample said they had voted for Trump over Hillary Clinton. Swing state voters also expect President Trump will cut Medicare if given the opportunity to do so.
Overall, we find that President Trump is exceedingly vulnerable on health care issues, as a plurality of voters believe he will not fulfill his past promises and will actively cut Medicare if given the chance.
