Pretty much consistent on approve/disapprove on the issues. Gallup's polling on health care has always been odd; I'd advise a member of Congress to vote for a healthcare bill this year too... just not the one being considered right now.

Consistent with the Quinn poll.

Yeah, the question shows that people still want health care reform, just not the garbage bill that is being shoved down their throats.

People want health care reform, but the issue is so complex that there is no consensus. It's not as if there's two choices when it comes to health care, unlike a question like "should we go to war or not."
