Poll: Californians favor health care bill
The Mercury News

Half of Californians surveyed in a new poll say they support the health care reform President Barack Obama signed into law this week. A Public Policy Institute of California poll released Wednesday shows 50 percent support it and 39 percent are opposed. Support is still sharply divided along partisan lines: 70 percent of Democrats back the bill, but just 16 percent of Republicans do. About half of independent voters also support it.
