The most recent Field Poll shows 54 percent of registered voters favor the federal effort to overhaul health care, and 37 percent oppose it.
Conducted for the California Wellness Foundation, the poll found that many Californians remain uninsured in a heavily Democratic state, and that support for the Obama administration’s reform measure increased substantially among voters following the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling upholding the law.
The poll’s authors said their work has a plus-or-minus margin of error of 2.9 percent.
