Most Ohio Voters View Social Security, Medicare Favorably

Monday, February 13, 2012

Ohio voters, compared to voters nationwide, have a more favorable opinion of Social Security but view Medicare about the same.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Ohio finds that 65% have at least a somewhat favorable opinion of Social Security, including 31% who have a Very Favorable opinion of it.  Thirty percent (30%) have an unfavorable impression of the government retirement system, with eight percent (8%) who have a Very Unfavorable opinion of it.  (To see survey question working, click here.)
