Florida Democrats 3:1 support the 06/28/12 Supreme Court decision on the Affordable Care Act. But Florida Republicans 6:1 oppose the ruling. When the two groups are proportionally blended, the state of Florida comes down this way: 39% support the ruling, 50% oppose, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for WFLA-TV in Tampa.
- 51% in Florida say they expect the cost of health care to go up as a result of the decision.
- 47% in Florida say they expect the quality of their health care coverage to get worse as a result of the decision.
- Moderates say the Supreme Court of the United States has integrity. Conservatives say the Supreme Court lacks integrity.
SurveyUSA interviewed 650 Florida adults on 06/28/12. Of the adults, 539 were following news of the Supreme Court decision and were asked the substantive questions of the survey. 9% of the Floridians interviewed do not currently have health insurance coverage. Among the small number who do not currently have health insurance, there is 3:1 opposition to a court ruling that, in effect, requires them to purchase coverage.
