Voters See Quality of Health Care Going Down

Voters are increasingly critical of the health care they get and predict it will get even worse under the new national health care law.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 70% of Likely U.S. Voters still rate the quality of the health care they receive as good or excellent. That’s down just one point from January but 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 six percent (6%), however, rate the care they get as poor, consistent with findings in past surveys. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
