April 6, 2011 BOSTON—Nearly half of Massachusetts voters are saying the state’s landmark health care law isn’t working.
That’s according to a new poll by Suffolk University and WHDH-TV which found 49 percent of respondents said they didn’t feel the 2006 law was helping. Thirty-eight percent said it was working.
Thirteen percent were undecided.
Asked if former Gov. Mitt Romney’s decision to sign the law in 2006 could help or hurt his presidential hopes, 54 percent said it would hurt while 22 percent felt it would help and another 22 percent were undecided.
Suffolk University Political Research Center Director David Paleologos said the issue could weigh down Romney.
The survey of 500 likely Massachusetts voters was conducted from April 3-5 and has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.
