As the debate over health-care reform heats up, fewer Americans say they are in favor of a complete overhaul of the American system, according to a new NBC poll.
Only 21 percent of those surveyed said they believe health care needs a complete overhaul, down from 33 percent in April. An increased number said they’re in favor either a major overhaul (30 percent) or minor reform (31 percent).
Meanwhile, 47 percent said they oppose a public health-care option, up three percentage points since July, while 43 percent favor it, a decrease of three points.
