Visualizing Health Policy: Health Care in the 2012 Election
The October 2012 Visualizing Health Policy infographic provides a snapshot of how health care–related issues are shaping the 2012 presidential election, including the percentage of Democrats, Republicans, and independents who named health care or the economy as the issue that is most important in determining their vote for President; which health care issues are considered most important by Americans; how health care has compared with the economy and other issues as the most important issue in the past five elections; and how US adults rank President Obama vs. Governor Romney as the candidate most trusted on various health care–related issues.
Visualizing Health Policy is a monthly infographic series produced in partnership with the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Each month’s infographic is freely available on JAMA’s website and is published in the print edition of the journal.
