Gallup: Republican voters increasingly satisfied with total cost of healthcare

Americans are currently more satisfied with healthcare costs than they have been since 2009, primarily due to growing satisfaction among Republicans, according to Gallup's annual "Health and Healthcare" poll.    

Just over 1 in 4 Americans say they are satisfied with the total cost of healthcare in the U.S., matching 2009 levels. However, when stratified by political party, most of the satisfaction is coming from Republican voters, according to the report.

This year, 43 percent of Republicans said they are satisfied with the total cost of healthcare. This is up significantly from the year prior (26 percent) and compared to other groups, like Democrats (9 percent of whom are satisfied) and independents (25 percent satisfied).

"It is possible that this partisan-based divergence may be a response to the rhetoric from both parties," Gallup notes. The poll was conducted Nov. 1-14.
