Poll: Regroup on healthcare, most say

USA Today, January 22, 2010

A majority of Americans say President Obama and congressional Democrats should suspend work on the healthcare bill that has been on the verge of passage and consider alternatives that would draw more Republican support, a USA Today/Gallup Poll finds. Those surveyed are inclined to say Obama and Democratic leaders have erred in making healthcare the top legislative priority for now. Forty-six percent say that healthcare is important but that there are other problems they should address first; 19% say healthcare should not be a major priority.
