If they had a routine medical issue, 87% of voters are at least somewhat confident that they would have access to appropriate doctors and health care services. When it comes to serious medical issues, 84% of voters express such confidence.
These totals include 51% who are Very Confident they have access to appropriate care for routine issues and 48% who are Very Confident about access to care for serious medical issues.
The results are similar across virtually every demographic group.
It is interesting to note the response among voters with no health insurance. A majority of these voters (51%) are confident they have access to care for both routine and serious medical issues.

The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted by Scott Rasmussen using a mixed mode approach from July 15-17, 2021. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Most respondents were contacted online or via text while 179 were contacted using automated phone polling techniques. Online respondents were selected from a list of Registered Voters and through a process of Random Digital Engagement. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
Note: No results are shown for those who get their insurance from Obamacare exchanges because the sample size was too small to report.
