Overall, slightly more than half of all doctors are Democrats, but they sort out differently when broken down by specialty. Your surgeon, anesthesiologist, and urologist are probably Republican. Your infectious disease specialist, psychiatrist, and pediatrician are likely Democrats. "One explanation could be money. Doctors tend to earn very high salaries compared with average Americans, but the highest-paid doctors earn many times as much as those in the lower- paying specialties. The fields with higher average salaries tended to contain more doctors who were Republican, while the comparatively lower-paying fields were more popular among Democrats. That matches with national data, which show that, for people with a given level of education, richer ones are more likely to lean Republican (possibly because of a concern over the liberal policy goal of taxing the wealthiest at a higher rate)."
