Post-Argument Polling on Health Care Reform

The Kaiser Family Foundation just released its most recent polling on health care reform — its first tracking poll since last month’s oral argument in the Supreme Court.  The poll finds little change in public opinion about the mandate.  A majority of respondents both want and expect the Supreme Court to strike down the individual mandate.  A majority also wants the balance of the law to be left intact.  One significant change the poll did find, however, is an increase in reported awareness of the health care reform law’s provisions.  The poll also found an increase in public confidence in the Supreme Court, largely driven by mandate opponents who appear to have been buoyed by the tenor of the oral arguments.

Here are the KFF release, summary, and the toplines.
