San Francisco Chronicle

A majority of California voters support the national health overhaul law, even though only a quarter of them expect the law to personally benefit themselves or their families, according to a Field Poll released today.

The poll, considered the first major state-level survey on the issue, found that 52 percent of respondents support the new health law compared with 38 percent who said they oppose it.
