  • Voters Still Expect Health Care System to Suffer Under Obamacare

    Voters continue to give lackluster reviews to the U.S. health care system despite positive opinions of their own insurance coverage and care. Half still think the system will get worse under the new health care law.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 32% of Likely U.S. Voters rate the nation’s health care system as good or excellent. Just as many (32%) give it poor marks, up from 29% in August  but still below the 35% who felt that way in June. (To see survey question wording, click here)
