Ad: 62% Back Obama Health Care Efforts

More

After a Diageo/Hotline poll last week showed 62 percent of Americans supporting "the president enacting a major overhaul of the U.S. health care system," Americans United for Change will begin airing a TV ad highlighting the finding.

The health care push is a joint effort between Organizing for America (the campaign supporters list and website now run by the DNC, with some new staff) and liberal groups under the aegis of coalition Health Care for America Now (HCAN) of which Americans United for Change is a member.

The ad is targeted at opinion-makers, as it will air on cable in DC.

While Obama's health reform efforts may be vague to poll respondents, HCAN backs that up with a more specific finding, from a commissioned poll by Lake Research in January, finding 73 percent of Americans want a choice between private and public insurance plans, given the choice between all private, all public, or having both types of coverage available. (800 likely voters, +/- 3.5 percent margin of error.)
