When it comes to politics, Texans don’t usually see eye to eye with people from the opposite side of the political aisle. But it’s a different story, seemingly, when it comes to healthcare.
Polling from U-T and the Texas Politics Project shows 58% were either not very or not at all satisfied with the healthcare system in the U.S. while 35% said they were very or somewhat satisfied with the state of things.
“It helps point out why we kept hearing about healthcare during the election,” U-T pollster Jim Henson tells KTRH News. “It’s why we can expect to keep hearing about it as we go into the next election cycle, if we can be so rude as to begin talking about it already.
Pollster Jim Henson conducted the research and says while this could wind up being a big general election issue in 2020, but he knows it will be a big part of the 2020 primary here in Texas.
“Certainly in the primaries, and definitely on the Democratic side. This is one of the issues that we have to watch,” Henson said, adding that how big of an issue this becomes for the 2020 general election will depend on who the candidates are that are talking about healthcare.
