Health-care issues lead latest Arizona State University-Southwest Poll
Date:6/9/2009

TEMPE, Ariz. A majority of Southwesterners 86 percent think the U.S. health care system is in need of some reform, and more than half 53 percent indicate "a great deal of reform" is needed, according to the most recent Arizona State University-Southwest Poll.

Further, support for health care reform was highest among middle-age respondents: 64 percent of those ages 31-44 and 61 percent of those ages 45-60 said "a great deal of reform" was needed, while fewer than 10 percent in these two age categories indicated "no reform" was needed at all.

Results of the poll, which were released June 9, are online at: issrweb.asu.edu. They are based on a lengthy 45-question telephone poll conducted by the Institute for Social Science Research at Arizona State University. The poll asked 501 Southwest adult residents in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas their opinions on several issues, including health care costs and quality, electronic medial records, and the economy.

On the question of the U.S. government guaranteeing health insurance for all Americans, even if it meant raising taxes, support was highest among younger respondents, while 42 percent of respondents age 61 and older were "strongly opposed."

Specifically, 53 percent of all the respondents "strongly" or "somewhat" favored the U.S. government guaranteeing health insurance. That figure jumped to 61 percent for those ages 18-30 and decreased among older respondents: 56 percent for ages 31-44, 51 percent for ages 45-60, and 41 percent for ages 61 and older.

The reverse was seen among the age categories in those who "strongly" opposed the idea of the U.S. government guaranteeing health insurance for all citizens, even if it meant raising taxes. With 30 percent of all respondents being "strongly" opposed, that figure was lower among the younger respondents: 22 percent of those ages 18-30, 27 percent of those ages 31-44, 32 per
