Voters say deficit bigger worry than health care
Voters are still more worried about the nation's $12 trillion deficit than overhauling health care, a new poll found.
Rasmussen Reports surveyed voters and 42 percent rated cutting the deficit as the top priority. Just 22 percent said health care reform is the most important agenda item for the president.
Among those questioned, 70 percent said cutting the deficit in half is the goal the president is least likely to achieve while 6 percent said health care is the goal he is least likely to accomplish.
The poll also found that 41 percent of voter favor the health care reform proposal legislation but 55 are opposed to it.
