POLL: Kaiser Family Foundation Health Care Tracking Poll


A new Kaiser Family Foundation tracking poll, "the first in a new series on the public's views of health reform and the presidential candidates' positions on health care," of 1,233 adults nationwide (conducted 3/8 through 3/13) finds:

  • Of both Republican and Democratic candidates, 14% of respondents say Sen. Hillary Clinton best represents their own views on health care; 5% say Sen. Barack Obama; 3% say former Mayor Rudy Giuliani. 60% were unsure or could not name a candidate.
  • 52% want a new health care plan with a "major effort to provide health insureance" for nearly all uninsured with a substantial increase in spending; 24% want one that is "more limited and would cover only some groups of the uninsured" with less spending.
