Survey Shows Physicians Divided as Presidential Election Nears
Date:9/7/2012

NORWALK, Conn., Sept. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As Election Day nears, American physicians find themselves almost as divided about which candidates to support as most other Americans, according to findings of the Great American Physician Survey by Physicians Practice, America' s leading business magazine for doctors. The groundbreaking study of physician attitudes on a wide variety of subjects, including politics, found that in state and federal elections below the presidential level, physicians favor Democrats by a very narrow 41-38 percent margin, with about one in five physicians undecided.

Now in its fourth year, the Great American Physician Survey gauges physicians' opinions on politics and policy, sheds light on their careers and personal lives, and measures their professional satisfaction. The survey of 866 physicians was taken online during a four-month period beginning in January.

The 2012 survey documents the shifting work styles and preferences of U.S. physicians, away from private-practice partnership and toward employment, especially hospital employment. Fully 42 percent of respondents in 2012 said they are employed by a hospital or some other institution, up 11 percentage points since 2009. Meanwhile, a smaller portion of physicians (29 percent) than ever before claim they are owners or partners of a private practice.

Physicians are nervous about what the future holds and frustrated by a perceived lack of influence over the shape of those changes. For example, 45 percent believe that primary-care physicians "will be replaced" by nonphysician providers such as nurse practitioners within the next five years. Meanwhile, 82 percent characterized an assertion that physicians' views are well-represented in Washington as "mostly" false" or "utterly false."

Offering integrated print and online capabilities, Physicians Practice provides award-winning practice-management advice to more than 150,000 physicians and their practice administrators throughout the United States.
