Less than 50% of Americans satisfied with nation's quality of care, poll finds

While most Americans are satisfied with the United States' military strength and preparedness (78 percent) and security from terrorism (68 percent), less than half are content with the quality of medical care in the U.S., according to a Gallup poll published Jan. 28.

Gallup has surveyed Americans' satisfaction across 22 policy areas each January since 2001, except for 2009-11. The latest poll, conducted Jan. 2-10, revealed that the majority of Americans were satisfied with federal action across just five policy areas.

The survey asked Americans to rate their satisfaction levels across two health issues: the quality of medical care in the nation and their contentedness with the Social Security and Medicare systems. Forty-eight percent of Americans said they were satisfied with the quality of care available in the U.S., while 45 percent said they were satisfied with the Medicare and Social Security systems.
