Source: Health News Index: Knowledge about News: State of the Union address: February 2004

Now, I have a few more questions about some of the news stories that I mentioned earlier. If you’re not sure of an answer, that’s okay. Just tell me and I’ll go to the next question.

You may have heard news about President (George W.) Bush’s recent State of the Union Address. To the best of your knowledge, did the President talk about his plan to increase health care coverage for more Americans, or is this something he did not talk about in the State of the Union address?

22%  Yes, talked about plan to increase health care coverage
14  No, did not talk about plan to increase health care coverage
64  Don’t know/Refused
