Half of voters agree with the U.S. Supreme Court that a business owner should be able to opt out of Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate if it violates his or her religious beliefs. And most also say a company’s level of contraceptive coverage is not that important to their decision to work there.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 43% of Likely U.S. Voters think businesses should be required by law to provide health insurance that covers all government-approved contraceptives for women without co-payments or other charges to the employee. A majority (47%) say companies should not be required to meet this contraceptive mandate included in the new national health care law. Ten percent (10%) are not sure.
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on June 30 - July1, 2014. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
