45% View Health Care Law Favorably

Favorable views of the new national health care law are at their highest level since October, but voters remain adamant about being able to choose their own level of health insurance based on what it covers and how much it costs.

Forty-five percent (45%) of Likely U.S. Voters now view the health care law at least somewhat favorably, while 51% continue to hold an unfavorable opinion of it, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. This includes 21% with a Very Favorable view and 38% with a Very Unfavorable one. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
