  • 53% Now Support Contraceptive Mandate

    President Trump rolled back an Obama-era mandate that required employer-based health care plans to cover prescription contraceptives. But new polling shows that support for such a  mandate is up.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 53% of Likely U.S. Voters think businesses should be required by law to provide health insurance that covers all government-approved contraceptives for women without co-payments or other charges to the patients, up from 43% in July 2014. Thirty-four percent (34%) don’t think companies should be required to meet the contraceptive mandate, which was implemented under the Affordable Care Act. That’s down from 47% in July 2014. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
