WASHINGTON (AP) – A new poll finds that more voters trust Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to do a better job on health care issues, from Medicare to medical costs. But they’re not holding out hope for big improvements.
The survey from the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation found that Clinton leads Republican opponent Donald Trump when it comes to the future of Medicare, Medicaid, the federal health care law, and the cost of medications.
The biggest gap was on women’s access to reproductive health care, with 64 percent saying they trusted Clinton, compared to 28 percent trusting Trump.
On the basic pocketbook question, 36 percent said they feared their own access to affordable care would get worse if Trump is elected, versus 24 percent who worried their situation would worsen under Clinton.
