Field Poll: California Nurses Association Most Favorably Viewed Group in Healthcare Arena
Date:5/1/2008

High Approval Ratings Consistent with Public's Support of 'Medicare for

All' or Single-payer Healthcare

OAKLAND, Calif., May 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With talk of a new effort to enact healthcare reform surfacing in Sacramento, a new field poll this week illustrates that Californians will once again pay particular attention to the voice of the California Nurses Association and registered nurses.

A poll this week by the influential Field Institute released documented that CNA had the highest favorable rating of all the groups, politicians, and institutions engaged in the healthcare debate that dominated much of the state's public policy debate over the past year.

The public gave CNA and nurses an overall approval rating of 53 per cent and a disapproval rating of just 15 percent, for a net of 38 percent -- in sharp contrast to other central figures in the healthcare policy fight -- particularly the health insurance industry which scored an abysmal 55 percent negative rating.
