Hillary Clinton’s Health Now Becomes A Big Concern For Voters

According to Fortune Magazine, voters are now officially reaching worried about Hillary Clinton’s medical fitness.

A new Morning Consult poll finds that the Democratic presidential nominee’s health scare on Sunday, when she was forced to leave a September 11 memorial service early and was videotaped nearly collapsing while getting into her car, has already begun shifting voters’ views about her wellness. Clinton’s campaign revealed that she was diagnosed with pneumonia by her personal physician last week and felt dehydrated at the event, but that the candidate will be back on the campaign trail soon.

There are still a number of open questions about both major party nominees’ health and medical histories. For instance, it’s unclear whether or not Clinton received the pneumonia vaccinations recommended for everybody over the age of 65; Trump has barely released any empirical data about his health at all aside from a bombastic and unusual one-page doctor’s note from last year, although his campaign says more information will “soon” be forthcoming. (The full extent of that data will not, however, be disclosed during an hour-long interview between Trump and celebrity Dr. Oz Mehmet about Trump’s “personal health regimen” set to air Thursday—although the real estate mogul reportedly surprised the audience with a brief one-page summary of a recent physical during the taping.)

So far, there’s no evidence voters are particularly concerned about the Republican nominee’s health, even though he would be the oldest first-term president ever elected Clinton would be a close second behind Ronald Reagan and the poll suggests voters are increasingly concerned about her wellness.

If it ain’t one thing, its another. This tweet puts it all into perspective.
