Summary
This poll, fielded June 12-16, 2009, is a part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked whether they approved of the way Barack Obama was handling the presidency and issues such as the economy and the federal budget deficit. Opinions were solicited about the most important problem facing the country, whether the country was moving in the right direction, the condition of the national economy, and the Republican and Democratic parties. Respondents were asked about their level of satisfaction with the quality and cost of health care in the United States, whether it was the responsibility of the federal government to guarantee health insurance for all Americans, whether the federal government or private insurance companies would do a better job providing coverage and holding down health care costs, and the possible effects of universal health care. Views were sought on health care reform proposals, such as requiring all Americans to purchase health insurance, taxing employer-paid health insurance benefits to pay for those who were uninsured, and requiring health insurance companies to provide coverage regardless of pre-existing medical conditions. Information was collected on the financial situation of the respondent's household, whether they had health insurance coverage, the source of their insurance coverage, and the affordability of basic medical care under their current health insurance plan. Additional topics addressed Roe versus Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States, gay marriage, affirmation action programs for minorities and low-income individuals, the Supreme Court and the nomination of federal appeals court Judge Sonia Sotomayor, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, television political commentators, and the possible closure of the United States military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Demographic variables include sex, age, race, education level, marital status, household income, employment status, perceived social class, political party affiliation, political philosophy, voter registration status and participation history, religious preference, the presence of adults between the ages of 18 and 29 in the household, whether respondents had children under the age of 18 years, and whether they considered themselves to be a born-again Christian
