Americans' Attitudes On Economic Issues Have Shifted, Per Franklin & Marshall College Poll With Hearst Television
Date:9/24/2009

althcare reform, paradoxically, a nearly identical number (78%) say the current healthcare system is meeting their needs "very well" or "pretty well," with only 21 percent saying the current system is not meeting their needs. Among those who are dissatisfied with the current system, cost is overwhelmingly cited (56%) as a primary concern.
  • When asked how the U.S. healthcare system compares to that of other industrialized nations, 36 percent say it is "above average," 29 percent say "average," and 30 percent say "below average." The cost of healthcare (18%) and the availability of health insurance coverage (19%) were significant problems for about one in five adults during the past year.
  • The healthcare debate continues to influence Americans' attitudes toward the administration. A slim majority (51%) of registered Americans believe President Obama is doing an "excellent" or "good" job, while nearly as many (47%) believe he is doing a "fair" or "poor" job. A large majority (74%) of Democrats indicate the president is doing an "excellent" or "good" job, versus 25 percent who say he is doing an "only fair" or "poor" job.
    • The president's job performance ratings among Republicans are substantially lower (13% "excellent" or "good" and 83% "only fair" or "poor") and among Independents are more divided (47% "excellent" or "good" and 54% "only fair" or "poor").
  • Also, roughly half (51%) of registered Americans approve of the president's handling of the situation in Afghanistan; 29 percent disapprove. In addition, 54 percent say they personally favor the U.S. military operation in Afghanistan, while 36 percent oppose.
