'We love the NHS' - Erm, no. Less than a fifth of us do

Courtesy of a Zogby poll intended for a US audience rather than a UK one, it would seem. As I have not been able to find this referenced in the British media, I was a bit tempted to slap 'exclusive' in the headline, but I do have some residual sense of shame.

Anyway, onward:


"The survey asked how satisfied people were with the NHS on a four-point scale: very satisfied, somewhat satisfied, somewhat dissatisfied and very dissatisfied":



The poll was done by e-mail (yougov?) and only polled 506 adults, so it is a bit suspect, but it's a start.    A majority are at least somewhat satisfied, but referencing that buttock-clenchingly awful twitter campaign of a few weeks back, 18.6% being very satisfied is some way short of 'love'.  That one in fifty of my compatriots cannot muster an opinion on this topic is profoundly depressing.

The question on waiting times sees somewhat  more robust responses:


 
The positive / negative split is 60/40 ish
