First Focus/Fabrizio McLaughlin & Associates Poll Shows Republican Voters want a Strong Children’s Health BillHealth
First Focus has released nationwide polling data confirming strong support for children’s health coverage legislation among Republican voters. The poll, conducted by Republican polling firm Fabrizio McLaughlin & Associates, found that by 62-31% — a 2-to-1 margin of support — Republican voters support Congressional passage of a bill that would extend and strengthen the popular State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). In addition, the poll found that by a 4-to-3 margin Republican voters are less likely to vote to reelect their Members of Congress if they oppose the legislation.
