Rising health care costs and growing instability in insurance coverage have made health reform a key issue in this election year, this survey shows. Nearly six of 10 Americans (57%) say presidential and congressional candidates' views on health reform will be a "very important" factor in their vote this November. What's more, majorities across the political spectrum support a variety of policies that would provide coverage to uninsured adults, as well as believe that financing care should remain a shared responsibility among individuals, employers, and government.
