MDLinx Survey: Private doctors choose Romney 2-to-1

  
  
  
  
  

Stephen Smith, Chief Marketing Officer at MDLinx, gets quoted in the Washington Examiner on the recent MDLinx Survey on a new poll of 4,681 physicians. Doctors favored Romney 53 percent to 33 percent for Obama, with 12 percent undecided and the rest backing a third candidate.

But sole practitioners polled from the MDLinx doctor base were quizzed about the candidates, 58 percent chose Romney to 28 percent for Obama, an indication that private doctors are worried about the impact Obamacare will have on their practices.

By comparison, doctors working for hospitals backed the president 47 percent to 37 percent.

"Healthcare has charged to the top of the campaigns' messaging this year, and U.S. physicians have a lot invested in the direction taken in the next administration," said Stephen Smith, of MDLinx. "While there were several observed trends, the most substantial was that as the size of the physician's workplace fell from hospital-based to solo practitioner, each step down in size showed an additional shift toward the Republican candidate."
