41% View Health Care Law Favorably

Monday, September 02, 2013

Most voters still don’t like President Obama’s national health care law, but they favor more strongly than ever government-mandated guidelines for health insurance coverage as long as individuals still can decide how much coverage they want to buy.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 41% of Likely U.S. Voters have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of the health care law, while 52% view it unfavorably. This includes 18% with a Very Favorable opinion of it and 39% with a Very Unfavorable one. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
