67% Say Health Care System is Badly Broken

Sixty-seven percent (67%) of voters nationwide believe the U.S. healthcare system is badly broken. A Scott Rasmussen survey found that 20% disagree and 13% are not sure.

The belief that the healthcare system is badly broken is shared by 68% of Democrats, 67% of Republicans, and 66% of Independent voters.

Urban voters and those with a post-graduate degree are somewhat less likely than others to see the system as badly broken.

Those who are in no rush to get the COVID vaccine or will never get it are more likely than others to say the system is badly broken.

Other survey data shows that just 22% believe that having affordable health insurance means having access to quality health care. And, a plurality believes that government regulations increase the profits of health insurance companies.
