Fifty-four percent of Americans reject a government-run healthcare system, while 40 percent are in favor, a new Gallup poll reveals.

Here are highlights from the survey:

  • 57 percent say the federal government should ensure that all Americans have health insurance
  • 85 percent of Democrats, including Democratic-leaning independents, say it is the government’s responsibility to make sure all have healthcare coverage.
  • 27 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, say it is the government’s responsibility to ensure Americans have healthcare coverage.

“Healthcare has become one of the most politically polarized issues on the nation's policy agenda,” Gallup said in its report accompanying the poll results. “Republicans largely dispute the idea that it is the government's role to get heavily involved in mandating or providing healthcare, while Democrats largely support these ideas.

The poll, conducted Nov. 1-11, surveyed 1,037 adults. It has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
