Rasmussen Reports

Just before midterm congressional elections in which the new national health care law has been a major issue, 58% of Likely U.S. Voters favor repeal of the measure, including 45% who Strongly Favor it.  That’s the highest overall level of support for repeal since mid-September.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 36% of voters oppose repeal of the health care law, with 27% who are Strongly Opposed. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The majority of voters have favored repeal in every weekly Rasmussen Reports survey since Democrats in Congress passed the law in late March. Voter support for repeal has ranged from a low of 50% to a high of 63%.

Republicans and voters not affiliated with either of the major political parties remain overwhelmingly in favor of repealing the health care law. Democrats continue to feel strongly that it should not be repealed.

Eighty-four percent (84%) of voters who have health insurance rate their coverage as good or excellent. Only two percent (2%) describe it as poor. Among voters with health insurance, 60% favor repeal of the health care law. Voters without health insurance oppose repeal by a narrower 50% to 43% margin.

Forty-three percent (43%) of those with health insurance say it’s at least somewhat likely that the passage of the health care bill means they’ll have to change their coverage.  Just as many (44%) say it’s not likely they’ll have to change their insurance. That includes 21% who say it’s Very Likely and 17% who say it’s Not At All Likely.  These findings are more closely divided than they were earlier this month.

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on October 30-31, 2010 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Only 37% of all voters believe the health care law will be good for the country.  Fifty-one percent (51%) believe it will be bad for the United States.  A majority of voters have consistently felt the law will be bad for the country since late March.

By a 54% to 37% margin, voters with health insurance think the law will be bad for the country.
