2016 Presidential Election Score Card

Trying to decide who to vote for in 2016? Our scorecard can help identify which candidates are best for evidence-based health policy.

We are pleased to present our 2016 Presidential Election scorecard. The policies upon which we have rated the candidates are derived from Dr. which suggests there are 5 key healthcare issues at play this year:

  • Prescription drug prices
  • Consumers’ issues with health insurance
  • Gun violence and Mental Health
  • Value in health care
  • The future of the Cadillac Tax

See how the candidates stack-up when it comes to pursuing evidence-based health policies!



Based on a standardized ranking where +100 means the candidate’s policies align 100% with ours and -100 means the candidate’s policies perfectly oppose ours, the candidates can be ranked as follows:

Clinton +56
Trump +16
