U.S. Healthcare: Perceptions About Margin and Mission

The public is fed up with the U.S. health system, and there is lack of trust in the major institutions. Doctors, however, enjoy a high degree of trust.

  • Over two-thirds of poll respondents think the U.S. health system is fundamentally flawed and in need of major change.
  • Three-quarters believe politicians avoid dealing with healthcare issues because they are complex and politically risky.
  • Trust in major institutions to fix the U.S. health system is low, but trust in physicians remains high.
