NEW Gallup Poll Highlights Ongoing Martha McSally Vulnerability On Health Care

Gallup Finds Health Care Remains Americans’ “Top” Concern

That’s bad news for Martha McSally, who lost in 2018 because of her record of voting to increase health care costs and gut coverage protections for Arizonans with pre-existing conditions


PHOENIX — According to a new poll from Gallup, health care continues to be Americans’ top economic concern — a major red flag for U.S. Sen. Martha McSally, who lost her 2018 election because of her long record of voting to increase health care costs and trying gut coverage protections for Arizonans with pre-existing conditions.

According to Gallup’s polling, health care costs continue to be Americans’ top concern, ahead of the 2020 election:


“Americans are more likely to name healthcare costs than any other issue when asked to say what is the most important financial problem facing their family. Seventeen percent name healthcare.”

Even as health care remains a top concern among voters, McSally has doubled-down on her toxic health care record, including her repeated votes to increase health care costs, as well as her support for ongoing efforts to dismantle coverage protections for 2.8 million Arizonans with pre-existing conditions.

And McSally’s 2020 electoral problems don’t stop at her record of voting to increase health care costs and strip away coverage protections. According to the same Gallup poll, 11 percent of respondents cite “lack of money or low wages” as the top financial problem facing their family. That’s bad news for McSally, too, as the 2017 tax law that McSally championed has increasingly been exposed as a disproportionate giveaway to powerful corporations and the richest 1% that’s leaving working families behind.

“On the issues that matter most — from health care access and affordability to wage growth — Martha McSally is selling out Arizona and boosting her big donors and corporate special interest backers at the expense of working families,” said Brad Bainum, Arizona Democratic Party spokesperson for the 2020 Senate race. “Washington isn’t working for Arizonans, and McSally keeps showing us that she’s part of the problem.”
