healthcare-familyHealth care is ranked as a top issue for 72% of Wisconsin voters according to new Public Policy Polling.

MADISON -- A new poll released today by Public Policy Polling highlights Wisconsinites' strong opposition to Republican efforts to undermine the American health care system -- an unpleasant wake-up call for Wisconsin Republicans like U.S. Senate candidates Leah Vukmir and Kevin Nicholson, who continue to champion Republican Trumpcare bills.

According to PPP's latest polling:

  • 55% of Wisconsin voters -- by a 20-point margin -- disapprove of Republican Trumpcare efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
  • 72% of Wisconsin voters ranked health care as a top issue.

That's bad news for Leah Vukmir and Kevin Nicholson, who are actively campaigning on their support for repealing the Affordable Care Act and replacing it with a Trumpcare plan that would gut protections for people with preexisting conditions, spike health care premiums and strip coverage away from up to 30 million Americans. 

"While Wisconsin Democrats are working to ensure every Wisconsinite has access to quality, affordable health care, Wisconsin Republicans like Leah Vukmir and Kevin Nicholson continue to back right-wing corporate special interests' wildly-unpopular, destructive efforts to gut protections for people with preexisting conditions and strip health care away from up to 30 million Americans," said Brad Bainum, DPW spokesperson for the 2018 Senate race.
