Concerns over Clinton’s health renewed
TUCSON, Ariz. — Amid the mudslinging of the 2016 election, one conspiracy continues to arise — is Hillary Clinton healthy enough to serve as president?
An unofficial poll conducted by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons was released Thursday.
In the poll, 250 physicians weighed in with their unofficial diagnosis of the 68-year-old Democratic nominee.
More than 91 percent of the doctors polled said they are aware of the concerns raised regarding Clinton’s fitness to hold the office.
Sixty-six percent believe that if a doctor has a concern regarding a candidate’s health, it should be disclosed to the public.
Seventy-eight percent of those polled believe the media isn’t asking the tough questions regarding the candidate’s health.
Nearly 71 percent said that they have concerns that are serious and could be disqualifying.
The association that conducted the poll claims to be nonpartisan, though there is a widespread belief the association leans right.
For her part, Clinton has released a letter from her personal physician giving the candidate the all clear.
While Republicans continue to question Clinton’s health, the other side of the aisle voices worry regarding 70-year-old Donald Trump’s political qualifications for the office.
