Below the economy,  in terms of importance, is the issue of healthcare.  Forty-six percent (46%) trust Republicans more to handle this issue, while 42% place their trust in Democrats.  In December, Democrats had a slight 45% to 43% edge, but it was the first time President Obama’s party had led on the issue since July of last year.

Although the Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted earlier this year to repeal the law, the measure has gained little traction in the Senate where Democrats remain in the majority.  But the number of voters who are at least somewhat confident that repeal will happen is at the second highest level since the law’s passage by Congress a year ago.

Republicans hold a slight 38% to 33% lead over Democrats when it comes to the issue of government ethics and corruption.  But 28% more are not sure which party they trust when it comes to this issue.
