 Americans Trust Obama More Than Republicans on Health Insurance, Says Study

A poll, recently reported by the Kaiser Family Foundation, shows that 58% of Americans trust President Obama to make the right decisions on Medicare and the 2010 health care law.

Conducted from Feb. 13 to 19 2012, the poll included 1,519 adult respondents. Only 43% of the respondents trusted the Republicans, Obama's archrivals on the same issues.

The President, thus, has pipped the Republicans past the post in influencing public opinion on key issues.

According to the poll, Rick Santorum is the most popular Republican in public perception on health care issues. About 70% of Republicans say they trust him, compared to about 65% for Mitt Romney and 60% for Newt Gingrich.

The cost of health insurance and Medicare were deemed 'extremely important' by a large number of voters - more than 1 out of 3.

The health care law and birth control were deemed crucial by 24%, and abortion by 21% of the respondents.
