Awful healthcare poll for the White House
Some polling results from a healthcare poll from global branding firm Siegel+Gale:
— 37 percent understand the president’s plan
— 17 percent believe the plan is deficit neutral
— 20 percent believe funding will come from a fine on the wealthy.
— 32 percent actually support the president’s plan
— 40 percent have no idea how is being paid for
— 34 percent think everyone other than Congress will be pushed into public plan
“Clearly the whole health care issue is fraught with complexity, political in-fighting, and emotion that is not helped by poor media coverage. So I’m not surprised that the American people have thrown up their hands – even sophisticated consumer advocates are not clear about the plan,” says Alan Siegel, Chairman and Founder of Siegel+Gale.
Time for another speech!
