39% Are Aware If Their State Is Creating A Health Insurance Exchange
Monday, April 22, 2013
Under President Obama’s health care law, states have less than six months now to open exchanges for the sale of universal health insurance, but most voters still aren’t sure what their state has done. Voters remain evenly divided over whether their governor should help to get the health care law on track even as a key Democrat worries in Washington, D.C. that the law is headed for “a train wreck.”
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 39% of Likely U.S. Voters are aware whether their state has agreed to set up a health insurance exchange. Thirty-three percent (33%) say they don’t know what their state has done, and another 27% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
