Poll Watch: 46 Per Cent Want Health Reform Now, 45 Per Cent Say Wait Until Economy Improves


So says the latest Rasmussen poll.

The question:

Given the state of the economy should the Obama Administration move forward with health care reform or wait until the economy improves?
  • Move Forward - 46%
  • Wait Until The Economy Improves - 45%
  • Not Sure - 9%
There is not really a mandate for universal health care reforms as prposed by the Obama Administration and congressional Democrats.
In early March, 49% said health care reform should wait for a better economy, but 42% said the administration should go ahead with it now.

Since March, concerns about deficits have also grown and voters now place a higher priority on deficit reduction over health care reform. While the economy remains the most important issue to voters, health care has dropped to its lowest level of importance in nearly two years of tracking.
Stay tuned as Obamacare supporters try to ram their health care reform plan through the Congress this summer.
