Survey analysis: The first presidential debate

Much has been said of President Obama’s and Mitt Romney’s first debate, but Healthcare IT News wanted its readers to weigh in. Here’s what readers said about who won the healthcare segment of the debate.

By a slim margin, respondents chose Romney as the winner of the healthcare portion of the debate. Romney’s lively performance during the debate could be a factor, and some may prefer the candidate’s position on health reform to the President’s.

Only 11 percent said that neither candidate came out strong on the topic of healthcare, with 13 percent deciding that jobs and the economy are the more hot-button issues.

The date range of the survey was October 4, 2012 to October 19, 2012.
