The Public’s Health Care Agenda for the New Congress and Presidential Campaign, December 2006

This Kaiser Family Foundation/Harvard School of Public Health National Survey looks at the public’s priorities and views on health issues as a new Democratic majority takes the leadership of Congress and as the 2008 presidential campaign begins to take shape. It focuses, in particular, on differences and similarities among Democrats, Republicans, and those who identify themselves as Independents or something else.

The poll, conducted November 9-19, 2006, by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health, included a nationally representative sample of 1,867 adults, and was designed and analyzed by researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation and Harvard School of Public Health.
