New Poll: Americans Still Confused by President Obama's Health Care Plan -- Siegel+Gale Survey Finds Dramatic Lack of Understanding of Basic Points in Plan, Even Among Democrats
Date:9/18/2009

he 16.3% of the respondents who identified themselves as true Independents, only 21.2% of them support the plan.

    Political Identification                Support Plan

    Democrat                                    56.7%
    Independent who leans Democratic            54.0%
    Independent who leans Republican             8.5%
    Republican                                   9.0%
    None of the above                           21.2%

Interestingly, those with lower incomes - who are more likely to be part of the public option - are less likely to be supportive of the proposal than are those with higher income levels, suggesting that the outreach and educational efforts might be profitably focused on that audience:

    Household Income                        Support Plan

    Under $25,000                               28.8%
    $25,000 - $49,000                           31.9%
    $50,000 - $99,999                           35.7%
    $100,000 - $149,999                         36.5%
    Over $150,000                               40.9%

African-Americans are much more likely to support the plan than are other ethnic segments:

    Ethnicity                       Support Plan

    Caucasian                            29.1%
    African-American                     57.9%
    Hispanic                             44.4%
    Asian or Pacific Islander            38.5%

The Bottom Line

"The bottom line," says Alan Siegel, "is that this survey reinforces in very dramatic terms that the American people are extremely confused about the President's well-intentioned desire to bring universal health care to our broken system. The White House, in my opinion, should outline the basic architecture of the plan instead of reacting to criticisms and emotional issues brought by critics."
