Health Care Law

Voters Still See Dismal Future For Health Care System

Monday, August 24, 2015

Voters are less satisfied with the health care they personally receive and remain pessimistic that the national health care law will make the system any better.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 67% of Likely U.S. Voters still rate the quality of the health care they receive as good or excellent. Still, that’s down from 70% in April  and is the lowest finding in nearly two-and-a-half years of regular surveying  . These positives have generally run in the high 70s and low 80s for most of this period but have been trending down since the first of the year.

Only seven percent (7%), however, rate the care they get as poor, just slightly above findings for much of the past two years. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on August 19-20, 2015 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
