Voter approval of health care law climbing, poll shows
San Francisco Chronicle

Most California voters gave the state’s rollout of the federal health law high marks and overall support of the Affordable Care Act is on the rise, according to a Field Poll released Tuesday.

The survey of more than 1,500 registered voters between June 26 and July 19 found that by a 2-to-1 margin – 60 percent to 30 percent – respondents thought the state was successful in implementing the law, results that contrasted with the federal effort. Less than half described the federal rollout, which was plagued with high-profile technical glitches, as successful.
