in the world compared to nearly half (48 percent) who disagreed.
  • Fifty-five percent of those surveyed do not believe coverage for the uninsured should be the sole focus of the debate.
  • Respondents were most familiar with terms such as the public option (46 percent), health care co-ops (34 percent) and health insurance exchanges (28 percent), compared with terms such as comparative effectiveness research (20 percent) and the medical home (19 percent).
  • Methodology:

    The Deloitte Center for Health Solutions commissioned Harris Interactive to conduct a nationally representative telephone survey of 1,010 U.S. adults 18 years-old and older from Sept. 10 -13 to gauge consumers' opinions of health care reform following the President's address to the nation on Wednesday, Sept. 9th. Data were weighted to be representative of the total U.S. adult population on the basis of age, sex, geographic region and race. The survey has a sampling error of + or - 3.1 percent at the 95 percent confidence level.
