NPR Poll Finds ‘Affordable’ Health Care Costs, Medicare Rx Benefit Top Concerns Among Voters
NPR's "Morning Edition" today gives the latest findings from a series of surveys conducted for NPR by two pollsters -- Democrat Stan Greenberg of Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research and Republican Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies -- on issues concerning U.S. voters. Although poll participants cited terrorism and national security as "the most important issue facing the United States," domestic issues, including "affordable" health care and Medicare reform, will be a large factor in the fall congressional elections, NPR reports. "The message is very clear -- it's education and prescription drugs," McInturff said. The complete poll results are available online. Note: You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the results. The full NPR report will be available online in RealPlayer Audio after noon ET May 20. Note: You must have RealPlayer to listen to the report (Liasson, "Morning Edition," NPR, 5/20).
