Obama Approval: Health Care
44% Approve, 34% Disapprove

Do you think the government would do a better or worse job than private insurance
companies in providing medical coverage?

50% Better, 34% Worse

Would you be willing or not willing to pay higher taxes so that all Americans have
health insurance they can't lose, no matter what?

57% Willing, 37% Not willing

Some people have suggested requiring all Americans to have health insurance. Under
this plan, employers would be required to provide insurance for all their workers or pay
into a government pool that would be used to buy coverage for the uninsured. People who
do not get insurance from an employer would have to buy their coverage on their own or
from the government insurance pool. Does this sound like a good idea to you, a bad idea
or are you unsure?

26% Good idea, 28% Bad idea
