BOSTON, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- A survey of U.S. voters indicates 40 percent of respondents don't believe one presidential candidate's healthcare plan would be better for them than the other.
The Harvard Public Opinion Research Program at the Harvard School of Public Health and Harris Interactive conducted a survey on how voters think the presidential candidates' healthcare reform plans would affect them personally.
Thirty-three percent of voters say they think Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama's plan would be better for them compared to 27 percent of Republican nominee Sen. John McCain's plan. Twenty-seven percent of the registered voters said they don't think there would be a difference for them between the two plans and 13 percent don't know if there would be a difference.
Thirty-eight percent of women think Obama's healthcare plan would be better for them personally compared to 21 percent who think McCain's plan would be better for them.
The telephone survey was conducted Sept. 17-21 among a national cross section of 935 registered U.S. voters. The sampling error for registered voters is 3.2 percentage points.
