May 27, 2020: A Ballotpedia national survey found that 45% of registered voters rate the United States healthcare system as good or excellent. The survey, conducted by Scott Rasmussen, also showed that 36% rate it as "fair" while 16% say "poor."
Those results show little change since early April, suggesting that opinions of the healthcare system have not been significantly altered as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In the April survey, an identical 45% rated the healthcare system as good or excellent. At that time, a slightly higher number (22%) rated the system as poor.
The healthcare system earns positive reviews from 41% of women and 49% of men.
Forty-seven percent of white voters rate the system as good or excellent. That view is shared by 35% of black voters and 39% of Hispanic voters.
On a partisan basis, 60% of Republicans say good or excellent along with 35% of Democrats and 42% of independents.
