"Yes" 54% (53)
"No" 37% (37)
"Not sure" 6% (6)
"Another feature of the Affordable Care Act is that insurers will be prohibited from refusing coverage or charging higher premiums to individuals because of their pre-existing medical conditions. Do you support this prohibition?"
"Yes" 76% (75)
"No" 15% (15)
"Not sure" 7% (7)
"Many experts argue that, without the individual mandate to increase the number of enrollees, health insurers will be unable to stay in business, given the law's requirement that they not charge extra for pre-existing medical conditions. If we take that argument as fact, does that change your answer to question #1?"
"Doesn't change my view about the individual mandate." 82% (81)
"I am more likely to support the individual mandate." 11% (11)
