April 9, 2020: Forty-five percent (45%) of registered voters rate the U.S. healthcare system as good or excellent while 22% rate it as poor. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 30% believe our healthcare system is merely fair while 3% are not sure.[1]

The survey also found that 72% rate the medical care they personally receive as good or excellent. Just 6% say the quality of their medical care is poor.[1]

Sixty-six percent (66%) rate their insurance coverage as good or excellent, while 11% say poor.[1]

There are large partisan divides on the question about the U.S. healthcare system. Sixty-four percent (64%) of Republicans say it’s good or excellent while just 8% say poor. Democrats are evenly divided–32% say good or excellent, 29% say poor. As for independent voters, 40% rate the healthcare system as good or excellent while 28% rate it as poor.[1]

Partisan differences are much more modest on questions of personal medical care and insurance coverage.

Data released earlier showed that 22% believe our nation’s response to the coronavirus pandemic would have been better with a national healthcare system run by the federal government. Thirty-eight percent (38%) believe that would have made things worse.

Other data showed that, if infected by the coronavirus, 30% are not confident they would receive appropriate medical care.
