Health Care: Latest Poll Numbers

Posted: Aug 03, 2009 2:57 PM
As politicians in Washington insist our health care needs dramatic change, Rasmussen is reporting a surge in support for the American health care system:

Forty-eight percent (48%) of U.S. voters now rate the U.S. health care system as good or excellent. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 19% rate it as poor.

These figures reflect a significant increase in support for the health care system over the past few months. In May, just 35% of adults nationwide rated the system as good or excellent...

The new polling also shows that 80% of those with insurance rate their own coverage as good or excellent. That’s up from 70% in May.
When people actually see what the alternative looks like, the U.S. system so many take for granted looks better and better.
