Arlington, Va. – Concerned Veterans for America (CVA), a veterans advocacy organization, today released the results of a survey showing a significant majority of veterans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction: More than two-thirds (68 percent) say the country is on the wrong track, and 66 percent disapprove of President Obama’s handling of his job.
The results also indicated unfavorable views of Obamacare. Sixty-three percent of veterans disapprove of the new healthcare law, and nearly half (46 percent) of veterans believe Obamacare will be worse than the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare. Among those who have experienced the VA claims backlog, 60 percent report it lasting at least 7 months.
These findings are from a survey using a representative sample of 834 veterans and members of the military. Interviews were conducted March 8-March 16, 2014, using a mixed methodology of live telephone interviews and online interviews. The margin of error is +/- 3.5%. Keep Reading
