At a Miami rally on Wednesday, Donald Trump continued to attack Hillary Clinton over her health.

“She was exhausted [after the presidential debates],” Trump said. “You know what she did? She immediately went home and went to sleep.”

Clinton’s health has been a common part of Trump’s assertion that she is unfit for the presidency, especially after she appeared to faint after a Sept. 11 memorial ceremony. In the past, he’s said Clinton “doesn’t have the stamina” to be president.

Regardless of whether Clinton has health issues, polls show it’s not the best issue for Trump to harp on. A September NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that 44 percent of voters have concerns about Clinton’s health, the lowest of eight different options the poll gave about various Trump and Clinton flaws.

Many more voters, 64 percent, said they have concerns with Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. Unsurprisingly, Trump talked about that issue a lot more on Wednesday than he talked about Clinton’s health.

He briefly talked about Obamacare premium hikes, promising to repeal and replace the law. That’s probably even better politics, since pocketbook issues seem to be the ones that most commonly change voters’ minds.
