59% of voters want Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton to release their medical records: 5 key findings

Around 59 percent of voters believe all major presidential candidates should release their most recent medical records to the public, according to a recent Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey.

The survey polled 1,000 likely voters on Aug. 9 and Aug. 10.

Here are five key findings:

1. The percentage of voters who think presidential candidates should release their medical records is up from 38 percent in 2014, the year Ms. Clinton's health was being questioned.

2. Thirty percent of voters don't think candidates should have to release their recent medical records.

3. Democrats (62 percent) believe even more strongly than Republicans (58 percent) that presidential candidates should release medical records.

4. Voters not affiliated with either major party, which was 57 percent, said presidential candidates should release their recent medial records.

5. Sixty-three percent of voters who back Clinton support candidates releasing their medical records compared to 58 percent of those who support Trump.
