46% in Massachusetts Want Supreme Court to Overturn Health Care Law

Massachusetts voters continue to send mixed signals about their state's law mandating health insurance for all and are evenly divided over whether the U.S. Supreme Court should overturn President Obama's law modeled in part on the Massachusetts plan.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Massachusetts finds that 44% believe the state's health care reform plan has been a success. Thirty-one percent (31%) say the plan, passed while likely Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was governor, has been a failure. One-in four (24%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

This Massachusetts survey of 500 Likely Voters was conducted April 9, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Fieldwork for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
