Economist/YouGov poll on med-mal



From The Economist's "Democracy in America" blog:

...Barack Obama indicated a willingness to break ranks with his trial lawyer supporters and consider limits on medical malpractice awards last week. Our poll shows that the public supports limits on malpractice awards by a 42%-24% margin with 34% unsure. Hardly anyone (12%) believe malpractice damage awards are too low and a plurality believe they are too high.
