Still early in her campaign for president, Hillary Clinton is already dividing voters on health care. She’s simultaneously the most-trusted and least-trusted candidate on the issue, according to the latest poll from the Wall Street Journal Online and Harris Interactive.
Some 16% of respondents trust Clinton “a great deal” on health care, while 32% trust her “not at all,” according to the poll. On each measure, Clinton beat out all the major candidates in both parties. Overall, people tend to trust Democrats more than Republicans on health care, according to the poll. The complete results are here.
Which brings us to another provocative finding from the poll: 65% of respondents agreed with the statement, “It is the government’s duty to ensure that all Americans have adequate health-care coverage.”
