The results of an internet poll from the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons was just released Thursday afternoon titled “Concerns About Candidate Health,” where 250 physicians participated.
Over 91% of the physicians polled said they are aware of the questions raised about the impact of past and present medical conditions on Hillary Clinton’s fitness to serve as President, and 66% said if a physician has a concern about a candidate’s fitness to serve for health reason, the appropriate action is to make the concerns known to the public.
A full 78% said the news media is not putting enough emphasis on the concerns about Clinton’s health.
Almost 71% said their impression of the concerns about Clinton’s health is that it’s serious, and could be disqualifying for the position of President. Only 20% think the whole thing is overblown, but should be addressed with full release of her medical records.
When asked which of Clinton’s medical conditions were they aware of, 81% said they knew of her previous concussion, but only 58% knew of her cerebral sinus thrombosis, and only 52% knew about her deep venous thrombosis condition.
The majority (71%) said these conditions would influence their vote for President.
