Large Majority Wants Health Care Reform

A new Time magazine poll finds that 46% of Americans said it was "very important" that Congress pass major health reform in the next few months, and an additional 23% said it was "somewhat important."  In contrast, just 28% find the immediate effort either not very or not at all important.

In a separate question, more Americans said it would be better to pass "major reform" to health care (55%) rather than "minor adjustments" (43%).

Other key finding: President Obama has "significantly more credibility with the public than his Republican foes when it comes to tackling the problem. Asked who do they trust to develop new health care legislation, 47% of respondents said President Obama, compared to 32% who said Republicans in Congress."
