WASHINGTON (AP) - A new Associated Press poll finds many Americans don't support President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. But the main reason may be surprising: People who think the law should have done more outnumber those who think the government should stay out of health care by 2-to-1.
The AP poll was conducted by Stanford University with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. About four in 10 adults said the health overhaul falls short, regardless of whether they support the law. On the other side, about one in five oppose the law because they dislike the federal government's involvement.
Overall, 30 percent favored the legislation, while 40 percent opposed it. Another 30 percent remained neutral.
