Poll on health care law: 52% in Calif. optimistic
San Francisco Chronicle

One year after its enactment, most Californians continue to support the nation’s health care overhaul law, even if they have yet to see any personal benefits, according to a Field Poll being released today.

The poll of 1,194 Californians found that 52 percent support the health care overhaul law and 37 percent are opposed to it – almost exactly the same result as in a similar poll done last April, shortly after the law was enacted. At that time, 52 percent supported the law and 38 percent opposed it.
