Survey: Voters Favor Democrats Over Bush on Health Care Reform
Almost half of U.S. adults do not trust President Bush to improve the health care system, according to a recent Wall Street Journal Online/Harris Interactive poll, the Wall Street Journal reports. The online poll, conducted between Feb. 7 and Feb. 9, included responses from 2,482 adults nationwide.
Asked about the degree to which they trust Bush to develop policies to improve the health care system, 49% of respondents said "not at all," and 16% said "not much," the poll found. About 18% of respondents said they trust Bush "to some extent" to develop policies to improve the health care system, and 9% said they trust him "a great deal," according to the poll.
The poll also found that half of respondents trust Democrats "a great deal" or "to some extent" to develop policies to improve the health care system, compared with 28% who said they trust Republicans to the same degree (Wall Street Journal, 2/21).
