First Focus/Luntz, Maslansky Poll Indicates Overwhelming National Support for Covering All ChildrenHealth
A nationwide poll released by First Focus indicates extraordinary support for providing health coverage to all children. According to the poll, 90% of Americans believe that every child in America has a right to basic healthcare, with 83% of Americans support renewing the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) before the legislation expires in September. In addition, a ratio of 66 -17% of Americans are less likely to vote for their Senator or Congressman in the next election if they did not support legislation aimed specifically at reducing the number of uninsured children in America.
The poll was conducted by the renowned GOP pollster Frank Luntz and his firm Luntz, Maslansky Strategic Research.
