MILWAUKEE, WI – Today, Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach joined Jim Williams of Public Policy Polling on a press call to discuss newly released polling data illustrating the unpopularity of Trump’s health care agenda with voters in key battleground states – including Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Texas – ahead of the 2020 presidential race.
Recent polling from Public Policy Polling (PPP) for Protect Our Care found that voters, including substantial numbers of Independents and Republicans, disagree with President Trump’s health care sabotage agenda and disapprove of his Texas lawsuit, Texas v. United States, which would gut protections for pre-existing conditions, raise costs, and take away coverage.
“We heard what the American people are worried about – they want lower costs, better protection, and more coverage. They told us that they oppose key positions of the Republican health care agenda because their policies would do just the opposite – they would raise costs, give power back to the insurance companies to charge more for worse coverage, eliminate protections for preexisting conditions, and take coverage away from millions of people,” said Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach.
“A majority of voters in most states said health care is a key issue, and that President Trump’s health care record is a major liability for him – including for Independents and some Republicans. The bottom line here is that President Trump’s actions on health care are extremely unpopular with voters in key 2020 battleground states,” said Jim Williams of Public Policy Polling.
