Public opinion on health care reform not as clear or as clean as either side claims

Here are a pair of articles that look at the conflicting polling on health care reform. It’s an important topic right now because both opponents and backers of the federal law claim they are on the side of the public.

But as with all polls, especially issue polls, the magic is in how the questions are asked and what information the respondent has.

The first article is from Pollster.com and was written by Mark Blumenthal.

The second article is at ABCnews.com and was written by its director of polling Gary Langer.
