Survey Finds Ambivalence on Obamacare and the Proper Role of Government

November 13, 2013

Many public opinion polls have taken America’s temperature on Obamacare and its components, but few have asked whether government-guaranteed health insurance, as a principle, is a worthy government endeavor. A new survey by the Public Religion Research Institute does just that, and Democrats may find the results troubling. Compare how people of different political parties, religions, races, and a host of other demographic categories feel about a government role in guaranteeing health insurance and the Affordable Care Act.
