The survey found more than half of those asked were worried about affording out-of-pocket health care expenses, covering costs of a major illness and losing their health insurance. That’s up about 10 percent from last year.
The poll also found more than 70 percent of people are either a great deal or somewhat concerned that the governor and democratic legislative leaders’ did not pass health care reform last year. That plan would have expanded coverage to most Californians.
The Field Poll asked more than 1,000 registered California voters for their opinions in a March phone survey.
